The sides boards are joined using a small tab of the same material. This is done because we cannot edge glue the plywood together. I attached the tab to one of the sides with epoxy glue after it had dried I attached the other board to it.
In this picture I am getting ready to attach the final board to the side assembly. Notice the support under the joint.
When working with epoxy glue, do not to apply a lot of pressure to the glue joint while it is drying. Too much pressure will squeze all of the glue out. I used a board and some bricks to keep the joint together while it dried.
Here is the boat with one side attached.
In this picture, you can see the jacks we used to hold up the side while we nailed it to the boat.
This is a view of the stem. In the upper right hand corner of the photo you can see the cradle boat that I was building for my daughter.
