Put the track saw away your building a boat!! Everything is curved!I had a look along the top profile of the bow section leading along to the bow ( Prow ) and it looked straight. I thought great that's going to be easy , Err no , After cutting a 4" 8' foot long strip and trying it in place resulted in an epic fail , Its far from straight .Used the track saw for the straight cut

Back to the drawing board
Cut a section of Ram board ( Stencil card ) and clamped it in place with 2 F clamps , Marked the profile with a felt tip pen, Then cut out with scissors

Even this needed lots of further trimming , Why ? Because the first plank / board has to fit under a lip on the inside of the hull , Not sure why the lip is there but though I had better work with the lip rather than cut it off .
