Mastering plank build up

Building runner planks started for me 10 years ago. This year I will complete plank no. 57. A lot of experience gained over last decade. Some fails and some designs that never saw the ice –  awaiting for longer winter allowing time to test. 

Runner plank vacuum bagging

Today afternoon I challenged myself with simultaneous vacuum bagging of 5 planks.  I use bagging for stiffening planks. In this year’s batch two planks are stiffened for junior sailors, one for myself and the other two for friends who gained a little during lock down 😉 My feeling is that with next lock down there may be more requests for vacuum bagging 😉
