Stitch building is an assembly method.

Pre-cut plywood panels are loosely assembled; then stitched with copper wire or plastic ties to hold them in position. All surfaces of the panels are coated with epoxy resin. The loose joints are reinforced with epoxy putty; then glass matt and resin are applied. Finish work consist of grinding joints smooth and painting.

Composite refers to stitching plastic or carbon fiber panels, or sandwiched wooden panels. Sandwiched panels may include a foam layer.

Sounds like to much work for a row boat. I have done a lot of Glass work on boats up to 60 ft and even airplanes. Thats why I say to much work for the return

ED just my .02 cents
