Nice work. I am building a 2 similar boats for the deck of my Mamoli Friesland. I bought the boats from Russia and had the same brittleness in the planks and ribs. After making them slightly wet I bend them on a soldering iron which is not at its highest temperature. Switch it off after every plank otherwise you burn them. In this way it is very easy to bend them without braking.
Succes and keep up the good work.
