I am building a small dinghy with 1/2" white cedar over steam bent white oak frames with a white oak backbone. The plank is fastened to the frames using copper nails and roves. At the stem I am using 1" #8 silicon bronze screws. The plank is now fully fastened and once complete I noticed that a screw at the stem was not quite in enough so I gave her another turn while applying pressure to the plank pushing it into the stem only to see the plank crack a good 3 inches starting at the screw and heading fore and aft.
Is there a way I can fix this without removing the entire plank? This is my first boat so I hope there is a work around as removing all those
rivets will certainly be a chore.
Thanks in advance for any assistance...
