Laying out plank to scribe outer gunwale profile. Notched it to fit around the stem. Skipper supervised.
Used a Rockwell 4 1/2 inch left had circular saw to cut the curve. It worked great, I could see the line while I was cutting with ease, and the dry vac port sucked up most of the sawdust. Very light as well.
Planed the planks to 56/64 (7/8) inches.
Profiled the rail cap to match the gunwale with a belt sander, then random orbital sander with 80 grit, then 100 grit by hand.
