Re: Glued Lap and Stitch and Glue
I've built over two dozen boats using all three of these methods Glued lap is lighter, uses less goo, requires vastly less amount of time spent sanding to get fair, and is at least 231% more fun to do than stitch and glue. That being said, stitch and glue is probably ultimately stronger, not that either of these construction methods are weak. Either of them are substantially stronger per weight than any form of traditional construction of any kind.
Lapstitch is a sort of in-betweener method. I think it is excellent for smaller craft, though I expect there is an upper limit for what is possible or recommended as it is clearly not quite as strong. Still more than plenty strong enough for rowboat or canoe sized stuff.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
