I have the paperback version of "The Dory Book" by John Gardner. On page 116 in the 5th paragraph it says to not fasten the garboard to the ribs anywhere except through the lap. The whole paragraph seems contrdictory to me. I have read and re-read but continue to be unclear. I have fastened the garboard to the bottom boards and to the transom and to the stem. Shoud I not put any screws into any ribs and just into the stem and transom and rivet the laps together? Or put a screw into the plank only on the intersection of the lap bevels and the ribs? I'm building a 16' Swampscott dory and am confused where to fasten with screws and where to fasten with rivets. Additionally, I used 5200 along the bottom board bevel and where the garboard lays along the transom and stem. I also spread a little down the ribs. Any help on this would be appreciated.
