Yes, will be using copper nails, drill and then insert, snip off the heads. I will be oiling the deck and then a varnish to finish it.Your planking pattern (3 butts I think) is looking very good - it will be beautiful looking after it is oiled (or what´s ever you do)
Will you do also some tree-nailing of the deck?
The video would be interesting to see......the easiest way is to upload them to youtube and make here a link to the youtube video.......
I pin and glue them, drill pilot holes and drive brass/copper nails in.Very nice carving work on the lower hull,not so easy with the lines of Renommee especially the pronounced tumblehome.Do you pin or dowel the frames to the lower hull or rely on a straight butt glue joint?
