First, mark the width of you wood. Draw circles at the places where you want to have your tealights. Then, design and draw the front and the rear of the boat. Then cut it out and tape the cardboard/ paper on the wood.

You can see that I drew three circles, I only made two holes, because otherwise it would be too narrow.
