Stitch-and-Glue Boatbuilding

by Chris Kulczycki

Stitch-and-Glue Boatbuilding Synopsis

The definitive how-to manual for the most popular method of amateur boatbuilding.Stitch-and-glue boatbuilding may be the most popular method of amateur boatbuilding today. In this method the home builder cuts out marine plywood panels to prescribed shapes, then puts them together with wire stitches long enough to glue and seal the seams with epoxy. Once the epoxy cures, the stitches are removed, and the result is a handsome, strong, watertight boat. Stitch-and-Glue Boatbuilding lays out the basic building techniques; outlines the shortcuts and pitfalls; shows how to design your own boat or choose a plan to build from; how to select tools and materials; and how to paint, finish, and outfit the boat.
