    My reading of the instructions suggests doing them on the bench, i can see benefits and disadvantages of either though..

    edit: the more i think about it the harder i think it would be to get it right on the bench before testing with the next plank, but i should check anyway!
    Hi Jeff, I definitely cut my gains on the plank fastened to the boat...in my view, much easier to test fit and sneak up on perfection. I don't have a photo of them at the bow, but I did the same there, too. I know I got a lot of inspiration from John's great build thread.

    thanks jason! I'll do it that way. Nice to read through your build thread too, every one helps a lot, and yes - i think this thread was very much the deciding factor in picking the ilur - he sold it well!

    Hi, Jeff--
    Thanks for the kind words, and sorry for a late response--satellite internet was offline for a day. Anyway, as Jason suggests, I mostly cut gains on the plank which was already hung.....except for a few areas--if you look back to post #105, you will see ship lapped gains at the transom, where the first half was cut on the boat, the other on the bench. Otherwise, I would scribe a line on the previously hung plank as I was dry fitting the next plank to be hung, and cut the gain on the hull.
