Caps, Rails & Butt

Spyder's planking: garboards in mahogany for stiffness and strength, sheer planking in fir for torsion control and cedar elsewhere for lightness. Frames steam-bent oak riveted with copper nails & washers. Planks are butt joined, riveted to oak butt plates between frames.

Sneakbox getting rubrails. Glued up centerboard cap in oak.
