Misc's Methods of Boat Construction

 Stitch & Glue

 The stitch and glue method was introduced for twofold reasons (a) So that designs could be simpler and drawn without the need of a background of either basic boatbuilding or drafting skills (b) to save time on building, and eliminate some of the care needed in making wood joints, as well as remove the necessity for some of the metal fastenings. The process was however found to be only suitable short term for very small craft

 The introduction of epoxy glue with it's ease of use 'stronger than wood' and gap-filling properties has generally made stitch & glue redundant
