The Whiskey Plank
We have asked some of our WoodenBoat magazine contributors to write custom posts here, in a series of blogposts. You may comment (if you’re a member of WoodenBoat.com — It’s free and easy). We are pleased to share these with you. If you want to contribute your own original posts, we ask that you do so at “Your Turn,” not here. The views expressed are those of the authors and may not necessarily reflect those of WoodenBoat.
The whiskey plank, traditionally, is the last plank fastened into the hull. The occasion is typically marked by a party to celebrate.
