We install the tunnel planking
January 2000


The tunnel planking started with placing the battens. They are the boards running the length of the boat. The battens stiffen the 1/4 in. plywood covering.


We start the plywood panels. This turned out to be a harder job on our backs than we first thought.


All that remains is the bottom hull planking. Yahoo!!!


Is this a boat or a basketball court?


Done for the day!!!!


This is our tired helpers. Our daughter and her husband. It took several days and lots of aspirin to get over the tunnel planking!
