Welcome to the club! Some thoughts...
* CLC offers the LapStitch method on six boats... (See: http://www.clcboats.com/lapstitch.php) Since you're familiar with canoeing, the Sassafras canoe is a real consideration...
* But I wouldn't let go of the Skerry that quickly... CLC says it's an easy boat to build... I'd say go for it!
* Since you've never used LapStitch before, experiment on scrap... It may take a few minutes, or it may take a weekend, but you'll get the hang of it...
* Just go slowly and use this forum to work your way through problems and you should be fine. (And I should know.)
Just my $.02...
