New ribs are milled out of green white oak .The ribs are steamed for about half an hour and bent into place . Copper nails are driven through the planking and the rib while the rib is still hot and clenched over with a brass " bucking iron " I use brass because steel would blacken the wet oak .

 The front half of the hull is cleaned up in preparation for the rest of the ribs .

With the ribs replaced there is now something to fasten the sheer plank to .

This is the back end of the side deck . It was sawn off to get a cross section and thickness measurements for the new strips .
