Opinion about plywood-epoxy contruction
I''d get a copy of Reuel B. Parker''s book : The New Cold-Molded Boatbuilding /From Lofting to Launching, to have a good overview of ONE of the methods (as JeffH suggests) that''s out there. The South African Naval Architecht Dudley Dix wrote an article for Woodenboat a year or so ago, I believe, about another technique he used in his backyard. Of course, if you''re talking epoxy, the Gougeon''s book on WEST-system cold-molded boatbuilding is also de rigeur. In any case, however, the theory is one thing, and the practice of it is another.
