Carving.... and carving
Given all this work, I was given over to fantasies of building up these planks out of two layers, essentially adding the gunwales, risers, etc. to a plank. When I went to the sabani races I saw boats built this way. The style is called "nanyouhagi" meaning "southern ocean joining" or, basically, the foreign way. After asking Shimojo san about it he shook his head and said one word: "Bad."
