Here's a photo of the jig. You really don't need one for stitch and glue, but I could not figure out how to dimension the panels from the plans. So I made a jig and I'll just do stitch and glue over it. One idea occurs - perhaps I can use masking tape instead of stitches (since I have a jig to hold it on) so that I don't need to drill a bazillion holes in the boat. Should save time too.

    Failed to find 4mm okume ply today. Looks like a trip to Mac Beath in Berkeley in my future.

    Nice, what are you going to line it with so the glue doesn't stick to the jig?

    Easy - the stringers are not in the corners where the glue is!

    I already glued the seams and plugged the holes - next up is some glass cloth.
