You should post this on the Woodenboat Forum.
He probably cut back to good wood in each plank. You can extend those planks by butt blocks or scarfs. If you butt them you should space the butts so that three frames or three planks seperate adjacent butts. Scarfing might be a good solution, but oak does not hold glue well if thick.
