John, thanks for your reply.
I might be wrong but I think that the hybrid shearwater build uses shearclamps while the plywood deck version does not. Perhaps someone can confirm this???
It certainly does sound very convenient to be able to use wood screws to hold down the deck line fittings. I wonder if it is worth the extra step of adding a shearclamp?
I did the wood parts kit because I already had fiberglass cloth and tape. Buying supplies separately adds up fast.
