Many custom boats in the NJ were clinker built plywood with copper nails and washers.

They suffered the worst from neglect, but tolerated the annual hauling better than solid planked boats and we much cheaper and faster to build than Carvel planked boats. They were also faster as they were lighter.

Many skiff designs, but others as well.
