Setting things up

After fitting the stem, transom and centerboard case together, it was time to setup the molds and bracing. Then I attached a few ribbands on the future plank lines so I could see the “lining-out” of how the finished planks will look. It is important to be as accurate as possible at this stage, as this is where lapstrake boats might develop an unsightly line that is irreparable.
