I am considering building a swampscott style
dory in either Glued Lap or Stitch and Glue.
I have repaired small boats and can do farm carpentry but I am a beginner at boat building. I will be building from plans by
either Ian Oughtred (glue lap) or Paul Fisher (stich and glue) but cannot decide on the method to use.
I know I could do the stich and glue but would much prefer the aesthetic of a lap boat.
WHAT IS THE REAL time and talent difference between the two, assuming you are working from the same quality of plan?
I have read Ian Oughtred's glue lap book as well as Sam Devlin's stitch and glue book and I am still on the fence.
