    The newest proven method over a long history of boatbuilding would probably be stitch and glue frameless (or mostly frameless) construction, using plywood and epoxy and fiberglass cloth. There are certain to be some newer methods but you need not concern yourself with those if you are looking at starting a first-time project.

    Designers and engineers are always coming up with subtle changes to current methods and applications. I don't personally believe that taped seam (stitch and glue) is the easiest method for the novice or beginner. This of course is a well debated opinion, but after years of designing boats for home builders, the biggest issues I've found are "goo factor" related among the first time builders. The goo factor (my term for lots of messy adhesive and sheathing effort) is quite high on these methods, which isn't user friendly for a person with little experience.

    I think glue and screw is much more user friendly for the novice builder and usually far cheaper too. These methods are a cross between taped seam and traditional plywood over frame construction. Generally the seams aren't taped, but screwed to battens with a bed of adhesive or sealant. There's typically more framing involved, but these wood working skills are more commonly found in the novice builder.

    Can you list your web site address?

    I agree with PAR. While stitch and glue is newer as a construction technique, older methoods such as plywood on frame (chine logs, etc.), or even solid wood (as in typical traditional skiff design) are much better suited to the novice.
    There are enough miracle adhesives out there to assist in sealing seams and joints that it's not hard to get a really water-tight hull nowadays.
    You can progress towards epoxy joints later. Meanwhile, there are many uses for limited experience with epoxy and additives in even traditional construction.
    Luckily, there are thousands of wooden boat designs with plans that don't require huge amounts of epoxy--- some can be taped with fiberglass just at the seams (tack and tape), and those do not depend on epoxy for strength, just for waterproofing.
