Bow first layer done.

Had an extra day off and managed to get the full length pieces on the bow done over two days.  Each plank is screwed the same as the others, but runs from the gunwale to the bottom of the hull.

Front prior to starting (this is an early shot without the flat bottom panels on):

First side commenced:

First side done from the front:

First side done, from the side before:

And after.  Note the first four full 200mm wide planks heading forward, then I switched to 100mm wide for the rest they only got two screws per stringer.  The thinner ones were easier to bend in as the bow is quite sharp from frame one to the stem.

Other side done, final look.
