A new racer 6



The first layer of planking is 1/4" thick mahogany laid on the diagonal .



The inner skin is covered by a layer of 1/2" vertical grain cedar . The cedar is bedded in a polyurethane sealer that forms a water proof membrane between the two layers . The planks are beveled on the edges so that they are tight at the bottom and form a caulking seam at the top . The caulking seam is filled with a flexible polyurethane and serves as an expansion joint .

The first side plank is installed before the last round of bottom planking  . At the front the first side plank is left a little thicker to form a small spray deflecting lip were it meets the bottom .  The planking is then faired off with a sharp hand plane before sanding .
