wow! 1:30 am i knew “i’m not going to bed until i get at least one plank on” was not a healthy statement. that comes from lots of experience. however, i just glued the first plank in place. with 16 station molds and two stem molds my imagination was stretched to come up with roughly 40 clamping positions. a combination of lead drafting ducks, bungee chords, c clamps, and spring clamps are holding the first strake in place. now the worst part about working late. going back out to clean up!
