Planking was coming along nicely.

Triangular blocking was installed above the lines, allowing room for the 1/2" plywood, then the berthtops and countertops were installed from below. Outer edges were trimmed to fit the hull.

There were a few "exciting" moments when it came time to stuff the forward cabin berthtop down through the framing. But, I knew from building the model that it could be done.
