Hi Leszek,
Again, another beautiful ship you have build. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Just one question. I noticed that you planked the hull first on one side, before planking the other side.
Was there a special reason for doing that? Because normally you plank both sides together.

Thanks for sharing.

You are right. The second layer will already twist nothing. It is easier to retain regular arranging boards if they are making on both sides on te same time. In case of making one siede with some leaks of glue which will dry. Everything has it plus and minus.
