Re-fixing the plank ends where the old fixing have broken or come loose and other jobs

Re-fixing the ends of the planks where the fixing have come loose with age or have broken

Using the small stream box to stream the short planks so that they can be twisted into shape
The of the planks to be streamed and cramped to the boat with the twist bend into it and now left to cool off.

The second plank having the same treatment and also left to cool off for a day or so and then worked on and fitted to the boat/

This side of the stem, the front of the planks were splined but it is need of sorting out as planks have moved off the stem.
 This photo shows that it was not splined all the way down the stem so as put stress on some areas and not others.
