    I made the boat assembly mobile this past week. I used car jacks to mount the entire thing on (3) 1000# furniture dollies in order to maneuver it in and out of my garage or from side to side. Not enough room in the 2 bay garage.

    Making the boat mobile has been a big help. Was able to affix both sets of planks to the transom this weekend, whereas before I didn't have room to move...so things are good. Both sides are level, equidistant from the centerline and the boat is starting to look like the plans as well as other Albury 19s out there. Forward progress.

    18 rows planked up both sides now. Beveling each plank at some point now that I'm dealing with transom curvature and plank twist as they land horizontal to vertical, especially forward of the beam. Current method is to dry fit and clamp up the plank, mark off the gaps, plane, refit and adjust. This takes a long time given that I have to clamp to the rib as well as the planks neighbor below. But it's working out OK.

    Decided to steam and replace 5 sets of ribs, as the planks were not landing normal to the rib, and in some cases I had too much of a gap.

    I also got a helper, a young man who drops by each time my garage door is up. I've put him to work but he still comes back! Forward progress.

    Various ribs replaced and now back to planking. Planks are landing much better and thus the process is going much faster now. I also ran out of clamp length so I made a bunch of spreader bars to keep planks closed up on their neighbors below. Forward progress!

    Does Hylan specify sheathing the exterior with glass?

    In my case, yes he does. I am using douglas fir for the planking and was in contact with him as I planned the materials. Here is his response -

    *********
    D fir is relatively stable, as long as it is tight grained and quarter sawn. But your point is well taken the boat that I referenced for the plans is glued strip planked with Philippine mahogany which was not sheathed but well coated with Glovit. Over the years, the coating has been compromised in places and there has been some slight separation from the frames at the turn of the bilge.

    I would recommend gluing your planking and then sheathing with glass & epoxy. Id also coat the inside of the hull with epoxy, especially in the bilge.

    Started on the sole beams while the hull was still open and I had time before the rest of the planks arrived. I made a jig with heights pre-marked and then used a hot glue gun and popsicle sticks to pick off the contours.

    Floor timbers...decided to go with plank on edge at a height of 6". Hull is still opened up so I have room to maneuver. Finding the shape of each via the same method I used with sole beams.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I just thought it would look sharper with the color contrast. I built a cedar strip canoe a few years ago and used ash for the stems and gunwales and it came out pretty nice after epoxy and varnish.
