I started hull planking. I am bending the planks with the help of hot water and a suitable glass :)

Planking goes on. The planking takes time because i am using only white glue and i have to taper both tips of each plank and have to soak them to bend. The magohany is a brittle wood and we need to be carefuly while benging it.

You must be having no end of problems with 2mm thick Mahogany. I found 0.5mm thick Mahogany bad enough. I soaked it in Sanding Sealer and found it made the planks a lot less brittle.

Hi Mustrafa,

yep, I've got 4 times a much Mahogany on the AL Santa Ana. Its slow going but it finishes up nicely with a scraper. I soak in hot water then use a hot old curling iron to shape it. Works great and take about 10 min to shape a plank.

Nice Job. Its worth the effort to do it right.
