Garboard Planks Fitted (1619)

Garboard planks fitted, both port and starboard after a lot of agonising, trimming and re-trimming (and breaking strips of wood.) The model nearly went back into the cupboard but fortunately it came together after 'one more attempt'.

If I do get to a next model, I will approach this a bit differently. One mistake I made was fitting part of the false keel (to use as an edge) before cutting a rabbit (kerf) in the bottom to fit the garboard planks in. The garboard is now a butt-edge joint which will need some filling with shims to shape it as it rotates through to 'vertical'. Will deal with this when cleaning up/sanding the hull.
