Something does not look right in this image:
- The taper cut looks like it is backward: on the wrong edge of the plank.
_ I would also say that your garboard may be a bit short.
And if it is the case, this may create issues for your subsequent planks as you are planking your hull upward from the garboard.

My previous post was in reference to the garboard and the planks to be installed up hull from it .
As you have done, planking normally takes place in the following manner, but not necessarily in that order (your first plank may be the sheer plank at the top or the garboard at the bottom):
- plank down from the sheer-plank
- plank up from the garboard.
- the last plank to be installed is somewhere in between.

The way the garboard and the sheer plank are installed is very important.

This is not a view of the garboard on the model you are building but in principle it would be the same.
The garboard plank's straight edge is located facing toward the top of the vessel all the way to the stem / bow
The curve (taper) at the bow is cut on the keel edge of the plank. This area is to be fitted in the rabbet.

Further to the post above:
Edge of the plank that would be fitted into the keel rabbet all the way to the lower area of the bow.

This is what it would look like without the plank being clamped at the base of the bow / stem: view from the outside.

2.jpg

Viewed from the other side so you can see the back after it has been clamped.

At this point, you would trace the contour of the stem area onto the plank. Then cut away the extra material, but be conservative, leave a little extra to fine tune as you need to account for the edge of the plank going into the rabbet. You can very slightly force it upward (towards the sheer, not up on the model as it is upside down) but not much: the plank should lay flat on the bulkheads, it should not buckle.

If you are talking about the canoes...
The good thing is that on the canoes, you will not need to do any of this.
I only used one of my canoes as an illustration.

Hi Don,
Why don't follow the instructions from the manual.
The taper of the garboard plank at the front should end as a sharp point.
From the manual, on line, it looks like most of the planks are installed at full width: I guess that is why their garboard is so short.
