Have you given thought to how you are going to turn her? Will you be able to drag that hull and jig out in the open and keep her in one piece?
What engine.....if any....is planned?

Sorry Tom, the temptation to have an original by "An Apostle Of Speed" proved too much. PeterP
Is that the 13th Apostle?
Sorry, I could not resist

I am very interested. Good luck and thanks for the wonderful pictures. I am already jealous of your project and boat.

When I build glued lap boats, I scarf the strakes on the bench but glue them together on the hull.
In order to hold them snug tpogether on the build I use builders plastic on both sides and pieces of 9 mm plywood both inside and outside and screw it al together with drywall screws. Once cured I remove the screws and the ply pieces fall fof and I pull off the plastic and the scarf has a;lways been perfect.
Perhaps there might be someway you could secure the crarf pieces on the build reasonably to avoid the 5 min epoxy expense and time...
it certainly is easier fitting shorter pieces on at a time too.
Just a thought to mull around in your head. By the time you have the planking done I suspect you will just about be an expert at it..

In the one photo of your planking it appears that all the planks are on one side. If this is true. I thought you were always supposed to just put a few on one side and then a few on the other side to keep from warping the hull. That balances everything out.
Maybe I am not seeing both sides of the boat in the photo completely.
