I'm thinking about building a pirogue similar to Uncle John's, but with the bottom of the sides cut as in the "cheap canoe" for less rocker. The panel joints will be butt joints with fiberglass and maybe blocks. It will be glassed on both sides of the plywood. Has anybody tried applying fiberglass to the wood at least on the inside before putting the panels of the boat together. Then just filleting and taping the joints afterwards. It seems like it would be easier to apply the fiberglass smoothly that way. What problems do you see with this.
