this boat is full framed, you can use any good woodworking glue if
your fits are good. There are some tricky parts to the "instant boat"
construction, though, which you want to think about.
Bolger's written instructions suggest making the frames and cutting
out the side panels. Then attaching the sides to the frames "on the
fly", i.e. not using any sort of building frame. It can be tricky
getting things lined up and clamped because there is plenty of spring
to the sides and once you cut the bevels, the surfaces available for
clamping are no longer parallel. Clamps can slide out of place, etc.
You do need an adhesive with a long enough working time.
