I'm new at this game and have encountered a problem that I'd like to correct in a sensible manner (i.e. I don't want to damage what I've done!).

 

When I planked the Bluenose bow I allowed the strips to overlap the false keel. I need to clear that space so that the stem, under-stem, and keel can be fixed to the false keel.

 

In the photo below I've drawn yellow lines to indicate the line of the false keel.

I can file or sand away the planks (easy), or I can try to cut them (seems tricky).  I can't really visualize which will look  ok once the keel pieces are attached.  

 

I was considering painting the hull rather than second planking it.  I suppose I can use filler to try to fix things but I'd prefer not to have to do too much of that.

 

Suggestions?

I went ahead and filed out the channel where the stem and under-stem pieces fit.  I wasn't too difficult a fix after all.

Often we overthink solutions to problems, and when we come to fix them, they are simpler than we thought they would be!

Is the 'false' stem and keel already fixed ? If not, the sanding-down of the planking will be easier without them ...

No, not fixed, just put it in place to check the fit.  Hull preparation still in process although I'm also keen to get on with deck planking for a change.
