I'm working on building my first stripper canoe. It is a small wee lassie type (modified). Istarted my planking by laying a first plank at the gunnl at mid boat and layed in over the forms where it wanted to lay without contorting it. All was well until I got up to the curve of the canoe. The further I went along the more I had to contort the planks at the ends to get them to follow the previous plank. To the point it is very difficult to get the plank to lay flat on forms. I'm thinking it's my design but not sure. I have some GRB strippers and they change the planking on the bottom to all follow the keel line. This is what I am doing, does anyone see any issues with this approach.
