Any number of construction methods will produce a beautiful boat.But for the backyard builder with limited experience and a tightbudget, the choice is not so complicated. Traditional plank-on-frameand cold-molded construction require complicated lofting andbuilding molds—to say nothing of expensive tooling and lots of time. Stitch-and-glue construction, on the other hand, can producethe same results with a substantial sa ngs in time and money. Theprocess is quicker, easier, uses fewer parts, and produces a boat thatis much easier to maintain—without the building molds and withonly the simplest lofting.
