I am just about to start my first build, Wood Duck 12, and I am finding conflicting instructions in the plans and manual about scarfing. On the full size plans there is short step-by-step which says to scarf two 4' x 8' sheets of plywood together, cut in half diagonally, stack, then cut out full size pieces.
In the manual I get the impression that it says to cut out pieces from one sheet and then another sheet and scarf each piece together separately.
Am I missing something? Do most people scarf the whole sheets together and cut out full size pieces or cut out first and make several scarf joints for each long piece?
P.S. - I know there probably isn't a right and wrong way to do it, I am finding great difficulty in making any progress because every time I have a question about something, I go online to research it and everyone says it can be done a 100 different ways. With so many choices, and corresponding pro's & con's, and never any clear "winner" I never know which method to go with! Whenever I set aside time to build I run into a decisions that needs to be made about construction methods or materials, and I spend all my time doing research.
