trimming plywood Eastport Pram

I have cut the plywood to within 1.5 mm of the template using a small circular saw. What tool do I use to trim exactly to the line? I've read that plane blades are dulled by the glues. I don't trust myself  weilding a router freehand and hand sanding is laborious and unsatisfactory becuase I round the edges.

I  would appreciate any suggestions to make the task easier and more satisfying. Ta!

I've tried an apron plane....very satisfying! I'll learn to sharpen blades next.

cheers

  I think the plane will give the best results, good sharpening techniqe here. I have used a belt sander to get multiple pieces down to the same size, clamp material horizontaly and hold the tool so that the contact is with the table of the sander.
