HI In a reply to your question on cav plates the brass plate was fastened around the edge with nails and roves about an inch and half and across the forward edge screwed into the tuck.We only used a grade of brass sheet called " half hard "about a sixteenth of an [nch .That was let into the plank at the forward edge so as to be level. I hope this helps. Ron Lewisinfo.

Tuck = Transom or the lump of wood that forms the back of the boat.

To day I have completed the gunwale edge by sanding the surface and trial fitting of the timbers to make sure the two surfaces meet nice all the length of the hull.
The timbers removed again and the hull and the inside of the timbers have been coated with three coats of varnish to seal the edges that will be screwed together and hopefully I will not get any water seep under the ply deck when completed.
Tomorrow I will try and clean up the out side of the of the timbers to remove any bumps and nicks that they have had over the years. When they are refitted, I will only have to flush the top to the deck and start the clear coating of the timbers [4 coats] to catch up to the rest of the deck
The timbers are held with bronze screws and counter sank just below the surface . It was not plugged as some boats are .

Dropped past Ross's today and had a look at Invader. The boat is really coming along nicely. The fitment of the gunwales has really finished the deck off. Here's a few pics:
