First thin plank layer is done

This initial fore layer was started with 1/6 inch marine ply cut into 2 inch strips. I used one single side tapered piece for each 12 inch section to help the edge setting. Late in the game I switched to 1 inch widths and had better edges and less problem with twist.
Now I fair and work on the second layer.
3 layers should get me to 1/2 inch.
When the bottom of the boat is all at 1/2 inch then I can start stripping at 45degrees to cover the whole boat.
