Re: I think I've got it!

You make a good point. The "stitches" are really more akin to garbage bag twist-ties, used to temporarily hold the boat together so we can apply glue (in this case, epoxy). Nothing like a sewing stitch. Having little sewing background, this potential source of confusion has never occurred to me. I'll try to remember this in the future when explaining to others how we built our boat.
