You make a stitch by

Posted by DJ on Apr 2, 2007

inserting about 3" of wire - often copper, but that's not necessarily a requirement - into each matching pair of holes in the hull panels (strakes, to some). Then you loosely twist the ends together - on the outside of the hull - and voila!, you've made a stitch. Now repeat, ad nauseum. This is when your hull takes it's boat shape. Later you can go around and tighten all the wires. If you've bought one of the newer CLC kits, I think the stitch holes are predrilled. If not, you get to drill your own, and your instructions should cover that. And, of course, there are the very helpful blogs and how to's that you can look at. Good luck! DJ
