Wood again

Yesterday I bought a piece of wood for the tiller of the rudder. The manual told me to get a hard or medium hard piece. This part of the boat is often used as a piece of craftmanship. I could have bought oak instead, but I got meranti. It's often used for window frames. It has a nice reddish colour. Hopefully the wood processing will be easy.

Than I have bought the two sheets of okoume plywood of 6 mm for the hull of the boat. Thanks Bouwmaat for lending me a trailer for free. Next weekend I hope to be able to draw the outer lines of the planks on the sheets and start with sawing. The Japanese saw should be fine for it.
