The Planks are Looking Fabulous
As I visited the grey shed yesterday, it was full of activity. The plank steamer was busily softening a beautiful piece of cedar. Soon the plank was ready and the shipwrights gently shaped it around the frames on the shallop with the help of clamps. It looked like there were only two planks left to go on each side. I'm sure it will be ready for the launching on October 9th.
