Hi Geoff
That looks very impressive.

I have bulldog clips but not like you have got.

Nice, keep up the good work.

From what I have been reading they were more pliable to attach the planks and they should hold there shape. Once that is done then fit the with some PVA

They are called 19mm fold back clips you make 2 out of 3 by inserting the wire through one of the clips and then repeat on the other one.

They hold the plank in vertically and horizontally.

I had to clean mine up after a 9 month or so lay off, so I could work out there all the tools where.

Doesn't you Admiral keep you in check.

Hello Geoff

No, my Admiral will not tidy up my Old Ship Yard as this is my domain, and if she did I would never be able to find a thing, but she does give an opinion and helps me search for things occasionally, and that is very helpful.


Great job you are doing on your hull planking, those clips sure make the job much easier and do not leave all of those nail holes. I am still working on my display case for my Bounty, Broke a piece of glass yesterday as it ran out the wrong way, ordered a replacement at $38.00 so that will not be too bad as I used old glass for the other 3 sides, will have to wait for a top piece measurement, just to be sure, ENJOY.

Hi Lawrence

Great to see you visiting my build log, like old times.

I've found that with the clips that if the curve in the bulkhead is a valley then they are a little bit to long and you cannot push the black bit right up into the side of the plank. If the curve in the in the bulkhead is a hill then they are OK and you can push the black bit right up into the side of the plank. Also seating of the wire square with the plank is important. I will do a bit of adjustment on some of them with a knockcrometer and give them a little love. I also nee to start using my taper spreadsheet so a bit of measuring to do plus I want to chase up a lead on some Minwax that seems impossible to find over here.

That should square out the weekend and then back into planking over the next week or two.

Cheers
Geoff

Geoff,
can you take a picture of how the clips hold the plank in both directions? thanks. I have been using push pins hammering them into the planks.

Hi Donnie
You will see that the extra silver part inserted in the inside that of the 19mm Foldback Clip is pushed flush with the top of the plank where the spring part is pushed up against the side of the clip.

The back of the clip is slightly raised because of the curvature of the bulkhead so that the setup of the clip is square with the plank. If the angle of the bulkhead dips then there maybe an issue placing the spring metal part of the clip hard up against the side of the plank. I will give the extra piece in the clip a belt with a hammer to shorten them and see if that improves the setup. Just on a few for starters.

I pinched the idea of Lawrence (Canoe 21) Lawrence who did say from time to time he also uses 32mm Fold Back Clips.

I am using Selleys Aquadhere PVA but have some titebond II here as well. PVA gives you more reaction time than CA. Which gives the stronger bond I do not know.
