wood strip paranoia

I am about ready to start pulling the staples out of my stripbuilt kayak and I can't help this nagging feeling that when I do the glue won't hold and the whole thing will explode into a pile of sticks (probably not that bad but I am concerned that a few joins may come apart). I have done a good job of getting tight joints and am probably just being paranoid but has this ever happened to anyone? If so how do you fix it?
