I've just soaked my bulwarks in warm water for about 10-15 minutes and I was able to clamp them to sides of my boat, I'm going to leave them to dry overnight and hopefully fingers crossed they will hold the shape after drying, I'll post another thread tomorrow to show how it went

Got my bulmarks into shape with a soak hot water and clamped them into place to dry overnight, tonight I painted them and glued them in position. I'll take a better picture tomorrow when the glue is dry and the clamps gone, then onto the planking

That's the bulwarks glued and dried with all the clamps on, I'll start on the handrail and then the planking so all keeps going well for me

It's slowly but surely starting to take shape, I got the bulwarks, handrails and some deck furniture done today. I have a good colour scheme in mind but I'm not going to worry about that until I get all the planking done, I also have to put the transom on, but I'm really enjoying this my first build and thanks for all the helpful tips and advice I've received from u guys & gals 16210291393248228989112066797584.jpg
