Defeating Stitch & Glue Construction Insanity

There are many opportunities for temporary insanity while building small boats using the "fast and easy" stitch and glue building technique. If you are not careful and begin construction of a second boat, this insanity might become permanent.


Gravity is your friend:

It will prevent you and  the project boat from flying off into space, and it will insure that most of  the glue (the mixed epoxy) stays in the container.

That is all.


Gravity is your enemy:

Gravity will be your constant adversary during your attempts at keeping things in place for gluing, and at any time you need to move around assemblies/boats in preparation for the next step.
