Hello! I really like this project and really want to build this beautiful boat, but it is difficult to find a good tree on the hull plating. Is it possible to build this boat on the technology of sewn and glued? Thanks.
I've not heard of folks building this in stitch-n-glue, but they have built it cold-molded at our WoodenBoat School.
