Not an easy job but I think it will pay benefits down the line!
Even do the idea to use the foam to create a solid surface for the planking ,she will be fouble planked anyway ,using the first layer to get into of the “groove “ of planking and make a better job with the socond one.

I believe a polyurethane glue is the best type to use.

This photo was taken from a video that use the insulation foam. And Luke on the video mentioned for best results use a polyurethane glue. This one swell up so be careful mate.

What a creation so far! Good idea with the foam. It was a common solution for the folks building ships with card as without it the model would get that sucked in skeletal look between bulkheads. I imagine having a good even surface to plank against will make for perfect seams :) How many sheets of plywood did you end up going through for your keel and bulkheads?

Thanks for sharing this with us. I lived off Lake Ontario for 30 years and had no idea what the English or the Americans were building around here. Never too old to learn!

Hello Ron,thanks for visiting my build log,I have used about 8-10 sheets of plywood(need to check the size) 6 mm thick.

I was just looking at your use of foam and it got me to thinking. I wonder if the expanding foam would be good for such an application.
I guess can be used the same way and just remove and sanding down the overflow.
