Re: Uh-Oh, or not. Forgot the Caulking Seam.
I'd say do it right, or why bother to do it at all? On such a small boat, this shouldn't take much time or effort, and you'll be so glad you did it properly instead of just skeeving by when all is said and done.
I think you should saw and chisel off the three you already put on and reuse that planking stock where the boat is narrower. Cut them off, and use a chisel to split out the little stumps that remain. You can get get the nails out pretty easy with vice grips or whatever when the shank is all exposed.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
