Re: How to Stitch and Glue: Impressive Instructions
Dont forget to turn off the phone, do remember to turn on the timer.
Didn't use a roller until the last boat, used a squeegee, yellow, worthless. The roller is much better for catching drips and curtains.
Now into my 4th boat my standard mode after epoxy /fiberglass is to grab a beer after the goop is on and just walk around the boat with roller in hand for the next half an hour/two (depends on temp) beers admiring my work and thinking out the next step.
Good stuff to post though, I like getting a refresher every once in a while and both sites are very good.

Reason: justify use of beere in boat building.
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
