STERN REPAIR

The Starboard Panel at the stern started to come away ( I would advise builders to pin the plywood side at this point before planking) I have pinned it and glued it I should have used Aliphatic in the first place and not PVA. Because of the Mahogany planking it puts alot of pressure on the side

Kind regards

Mike

Hi MWG,
I also had to pin and use "heavy" gluing at the stern to keep mine together.
Also the "ears" on the forward decking broke off a couple of times and needed extra attention.
best wishes Peter
completed..... Endeavour Longboat, San Francisco 2, Virginia 1819
