9780071440936: Stitch-and-Glue Boatbuilding: How to Build Kayaks and Other Small Boats

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.

From the Back Cover:

  • Plans and assembly instructions for eleven boats, including nine kayaks, a skiff, and a rowing shell
  • Step-by-step photographs and drawings
  • The information you need to choose the right materials for your boat

    Your guide to the most popular method of amateur boatbuilding

    Building a stitch-and-glue boat brings you as close as you’ll ever get to instant boatbuilding. It’s the fastest, easiest method yet devised for creating a strong, beautiful, seaworthy craft with your own hands. Now, one of the world’s premier stitch-and-glue designers, builders, and teachers gives you the information and guidance you need to build the boat of your dreams in your backyard, basement, or garage.

    Chris Kulczycki explains why you don’t need to be a master craftsman with dozens of specialized tools to create a sleek, responsive small boat. He lays out the basic stitch-and-glue building techniques; outlines the shortcuts and pitfalls; and details the materials you’ll need. Then he guides you through each phase of the building process, from cutting plywood panels and stitching them together to gluing the seams with epoxy to fiberglassing, sanding, painting, finishing, and outfitting.
