Fitting new planks to a clinker built ex-on board lifeboat
by Bll Hadfield
I will be using either Cedar or Spruce for the planks but I am not sure if the timber should be fresh sawn or dry.
Fresh sawn is much easier to bend but the problem could be shrinkage.
Dry timber would not shrink very much but its difficult to bend.
Any advice very welcome
