It sounds like you already have a plan of action.
I am not a wooden boat owner but I have seen these kinds of boats being lovingly re-planked. One thought on wooden planked hulls: every so often you need to replace the fasteners (screws) that hold it together. On a boat built circa 1960 I think it might be time to check into this. I am not sure if this might explain the problems you describe with the 'plank edges' or if it is the butt ends or longitudinal ends or both.
A picture or two might be helpful.
Old boats are great but require work. Wooden boats more so.
