I’ve just completed the installation of the 19th plank on the starboard side. The 19th plank consists of a 3/8″ inner plank made of Alaskan Yellow Cedar overlapped with a 5/8″ Wana outer plank. The installation of the inner plank was posted earlier. The latest post (Alita Restoration Project/ Planking/ Outer Plank S19) describes the construction and installation of the outer plank.
The last few weeks have been dedicated to finishing the installation of the inner plank that ties in to the existing planking. See Alita Restoration Project/November Chronology (cont.) to read about it.
