Good Morning Britcoal,

I hope your water inflow has now slowed or ceased. I'm curious about your hull construction. Can you be any more specific about her being strip planked? Is she glued up and nailed from a series of square strips of approx. the thickness of her hull or is she more traditionally planked with cotton caulking and seam compound between the planks. I have seen both types of construction referred to as "strip planked". The first example is what I would call strip planked and the second I would call carvel planked.

Did you get a good idea of where the water was coming in from as she was taking up?
