installing new sideplanks

Post by allanguhl » Mon May 28, 2018 6:00 pm

When I start installing side planks do I need to use 5200 on the edges of the planks when I install the new planks ?

We don't, you don't want any to be visible when you sand and then stain the hull. You can see the 5200 in the seams and the stain won't stick to it.

Right now I have my boat up side down on the trailer and just finishing the bottom,when I start putting on new side planks can I leave the boat the way it is ? or is it better to flip it right side up ?

We try to plank the sides when the boat is upside down. It is also much easier to fair the hull in the upside down position.
