1946 Chris Craft Brightside U22 Bottom Planking Update

This update continues following as we install the starboard bottom planks to our 1946 U22.

Notice the blue painter’s tape we use to mask the seam edge of each installed plank.

Doing so allows the squeeze out from the seams flow onto the tape rather than an already-cleaned and fully-installed plank. We have one partial and one full plank left to install on starboard. We have consumed a bit over 5 cases of 3M5200, four boxes of nitrile exam gloves, 2 gallons of Interlux 333 and over 1,000 fasteners by this point.

Time to finish starboard!
