Side Planking Arrives

Today I picked up the side planking from Northwest Lumber. They are the only game in town when it comes to specialty lumber and they only have two choices for the planking. The plans specify 1/4" thick ply for the planking of the sides and bottom of the boat. The two types that Northwest Lumber carry are AB grade Douglas Fur marine ply and Mahogany ply. I went with the Mahogany. They come in 4x8 sheets and I had them rip them into 2x8 sheets which they do for free.
The side fairing is basically done. I may have some spots that need a little extra fairing but I just wont know until I trial fit the side planking.
