As I was scraping the interior of my Shellback hull and thought about the next project, i wondered if anybody had built a glued lap boat up to the waterline and then riveted the topsides or perhaps the sheerstrake, gaining the advantages of glued lap and having a bit of a traditional look. A sheerstrake on a glued lap boat that was riveted would make it look traditional w/o adding weight and extra framing. Or could one even rivet the broadstrakes that are above the waterline? I imagine one would have to add some framing to compensate. Part of my thinking is that I want to find a boat to build with kids that won't leak but also teach some traditional skill. Anyway, my random thought of the day...what do people think? Thanks.
