Re: Strip: STRIP BUILT KAYAK DECK

The bigger concern that I have is that you built the hull with short strips and what appears to be butt joints. Is that the case or did you scarf the joints? Butt joints have very little strength and my concern is whether they'll hold up to the stresses that a hull endures.
