The entire rest of the bottom has been re-fastened as most of the original screws crumbled when we removed planks. Interestingly the entire boat had been sister framed at some point in time and we were able to put most of the new fasteners into sister frames - which sped the process along a bit... which is good as we are running over budget on the plank replacement. We should have all the new planks on later today or by COB on Monday!
