That's correct. The plywood forms come out after I turn the boat over. The strips are held temporarily on the forms by nails and attached to each other using glue and a few staples where they get stubborn. I'm getting better the more strips I put on, so you'll see fewer staples toward the bottom of the boat (away from the sheer). After I've got all the strips glued, the staples and nails will be removed, the hull faired, filled and sanded, then layers of fiberglass and epoxy will cover the hull on the outside. This is what actually gives strength to the hull, not the glue. After the fiberglassing, the outer stem and false keel go on (possibly the outwales too). Then I can flip the boat, take out the plywood forms and start work on the inside. Same fiberglassing process, then fitting out with seats, thwarts, inwales, small decks at at each end and floor boards.
