Planking progress

Well, another marathon session in the shop today.   I spent another 8 hours or so getting the topsides cut and fitted.  Got the starboard side glued up.  There’s a total of 85 clamps on there!  I’ve got about 40 spring clamps now and the others are “make a clamps”   — plywood scraps cut into squares and a drywall screw. I put packing tape on the squares so there would be no chance of them sticking.  Home Depot has the 2″ spring clamps for $.99 and I’ve been grabbing 10 every time I go in.

Moving right along.
