Stitching Explained (Stitch and Tape Construction in Boatbuilding)

In reference to the previous post about building Classic Moths using stitch and glue; there may be some out there who do not know what stitch and tape (glue) is about. This video is a good primer on stitching panels together to form a hull. The hull in the video is a Chesapeake Light Craft kit, a Mill Creek kayak. This is a multipanel design and doesn't torture the plywood (like Greg's modified Mistral) to get the shape.
