Progress to date
The cedar strips I bought came in two colours – 20 coffee brown, the rest almost white.
I have used the coffee almost down (or up as hull is currently inverted) to the waterline and the white below.
Planking the bulge at the stern proved challenging but I think I have sorted it.
Planks not a neat as I would have liked, but with a 1 mm sanding allowance plus covering with glass cloth, it should look alright in the end.
