      Just for the record Wojtek, I built my Campjon with epoxy and bronze
      ringshank nails. The boat received a terrible pounding on the way back from
      Moreton island and is as strong as the day it was built. I glass taped the
      chines only, no glass sheathing underneath.

      Don't worry about building expertise, if I can build one anyone can. I had
      never used wood working tools before I built this boat. Honest ! I am more
      of a metal working man.
