Re: Strip: How necessary are stems?

I understood that you are using the block of cedar as an alternative to the end pour. My question regarding the 'difference' is, why not also use it as an internal stem as an aid during construction? It doesn't seem to add any less weight if you put it on after.

P.S. I'm also a 'greybeard.' I'm just new relative to kayak building since I'm working on my second.
