Hello!!!!
Good luck Joe, I believe that if the new Dumas PT kit have his problems, an old one would be more challenge

A suggestion, next time you plank a RC boat, use CA and a kicker. It will save you a lot of time. I have done several planked boats and the method that works best for me is to use Medium CA on the ribs and on the side of the plank, only doing one or two inches at a time. When the plank is in place spray it with kicker. There is no drying time so you can quickly move to the next 2 inches. Here is the Billing "Slo-MO-Shun" hydro I am presently working on. I planked the deck in one day. Also, here is photos of my Dumas PT109 that I built over the winter.
