TIPS Season 3 – The V-Bottom Skiff 25 foot fit side planking: In this Episode we’re fitting the side planking together as we are getting ready to spring our V-Bottom Skiff together. Each plank is still over 25 feet long at this point so it is quite a long edge to fit. We’re going to do it on the floor so we can keep the planks trained down and use the planks themselves to plane the edge at 90 degrees. We will also have to do a saw cut with our modified skill saw before spot fitting the pieces together again with our planer. This will give us the full port and starboard side of the boat and they will go together. It won’t be long now before we set up our transom and stem so we can bend our chines around a mold and connect them all together.
