DIY Stitch and glue boat construction is a lot like sewing

 

1)  cut out your pieces of (cloth) wood - generally plywood but also 'solid' wood pieces using a pattern (or more likely directions and dimensions for each piece.  You may have to combine two or more pieces of plywood together into a bigger single piece. There are several methods for doing this with advantages and disadvantages to each method.

2) stitch (sew) them together. Traditionally copper wire was used, but today plastic cable ties are often used instead.

3) generally the next step is to 'glue' the stitched pieces together using thick epoxy (a steady bead or 'spot welds'), or some other kind of glue or adhesive. This is done so that the 'stitches' (wire or cable ties) can be removed (usually pliers and brute force).

4) generally a curved 'filet' of thickened epoxy is applied to smooth out the sharp angle between the side panels and the bottom panels of the hull resulting in a smooth gentle curve that can then be smoothly reinforced with epoxy saturated fiberglass cloth.  Personally I like to epoxy/fiberglass the seam first and then 'hide/smooth/even out the fiberglassed seam with a 'cosmetic' filet (which might not even be epoxy, but rather some more easily sandable product).

5) the glued seams are sealed and reinforced with epoxy saturated fiberglass cloth. Usually this is done on both sides of the seams (but I don't think this is necessary on small boats). Any other pieces of the boat are attached (and often secured with epoxy and fiberglass cloth).

6) next - lots of sanding and filling depending how well you performed the previous steps and how much of a Type A personality you are.

7) finally, paint or varnish as you wish to obtain the 'finished' stitch and glue boat.

 

Visit our marine epoxy page on this web site (basic no blush marine epoxy) - we also offer 3 inch and 4 inch wide fiberglass to seal the boat seams.  Call to discuss or order (603 - 435 - 7199)
