Continued with the barge today. Added second side and started on the planking. They are plain coffee stirrers which I was lucky to order through my local food store a few years ago. Nice to have use for them at last!
The bottom is 5mm plywood. The sides are made of basswood beams with hardcard from pitza boxes to keep it together until all sides are covered with "planks". Maybe not the best method, but how I done it..
