Starting to get the last plank in place

Having mark round the piece of larch final trimming up on the bandsaw 

Planning down to the near to the lines ready to take to the boat

Just a matter of trimming with a plane and easing it into place and then cutting the scarph on the trailing edge and then gluing and screwing and nailing in place. 

Cutting the scraph on the trailing edge

final fitting of the final plank in the bow
 

All finished and primed ready to be caulked up and sealed with linseed putty.

Re-fixing the port side, so that the bow repairs are now finished off.
