Cut the two strips from the fret and sand them smooth. Apply glue to the areas of contact between the strip and the frames look at Photo C to see exactly where it fits. Place the strip into position ensuring it is flush with the strip in front and the planks below. Secure the strip in place with nails.
Glue a short length of 2 x 5 mm wooden strip behind the join between the strips. Repeat the steps for the port side of the hull.
