- May 1 7:07 AMJust 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.
