If you decide you have a real problem, you can dust the oiled wood with talcum powder, let it sit overnight and then wipe it off with a cloth lightly dampened with

95+% alcohol (IPA or ethyl) and perhaps some light sanding with 400 or 600 grit sandpaper.

The beauty of oil is that it is not so much a surface coat as it soaks into the wood fibers. Having said that tho it still hurts adhesion. Never heard of the talcum powder/corn starch trick--- I like it and it makes sense... another trick in my bag o' tricks ... ;) but whatever you do you need to create an area of as close to raw uncoated wood as you can. Clamping helps too but on a hull I had difficulty in getting any real clamping power so if you do your test tomorrow keep that in mind...:)

if the application of oil was recent and it did not penetrate too deep into the wood, it might work.  if not, then you will have to try a mechanical way, like staples, pins, nails, etc. just try.  nothing to lose there.

When you say you have 'oiled the hull' do you mean you have actually used oil on it or is a 'finish' that is called oil, such as Tung Oil?

The reason I ask is that if it is a wood finish that you have applied you should read the instructions on the can and perhaps all that is required is a light sanding before bonding.

thank you everyone :)  for tips I did just try sand the wood and than glue and it hold enough. If I break the plank away I need use quite strong. So i think that it is good and i´ll put treenails in to those planks for sure. And to biggest planks maybe nails, beacause i think that on ship it used be. 

Like here ( i used flipperphils pic) in the black beams, if can be a nails with half round head?

When I attached my channels I drilled a few tiny holes in the back (the side that gets glued to the hull) and inserted tiny nails without their heads. When i placed them where they should go the nails left an impression where I needed to drill. This and the glue gives stability for the tension that the dead eye shrouds will exert and its hidden :)
