I see a lot of threads of these boats built from plans. Not to offend anyone as I truly appreciate someone building something by hand. But why would someone want a skiff made of all kinds of materials, glued, nailed, screwed, taped and wedged together. Then covered over with resin and glass, sanded and painted. To me it seems like a lot of coverup. Something you would hate to uncover in a purchased boat. It seems more like first step in making a mold for a hull except it ends up being the hull. Explain if you like. No explanation owed to me. I build things myself too. Just curious. You wouldn’t build a front door out of scraps then glass and paint it.
