After 2007 stopped working on the ship until 2011 due to several moving and lack of time.Here are the pictures from 2011 with the first planking.

In 2011 I stopped working on the ship again,up until February 2015 and working on since,so I finished the first planking with a good sanding and started working on the scuppers ,somehow I missed them ,then I drilled the sweep ports.
