Anyone know what type of joint Elco used on the ends and sides of the planking (sides and deck) ? Also, what type of screw to secure it? Thanks, Mark

The specs books and plans show simple butt joints. Fastenings above the waterline were bronze screws and copper nails; below, monel screws and copper nails.

Thank you for the help. Highly appreciated!!! Is there somewhere where I can find some close-up pictures of the build?
