That is when the fillets are put in, stitches pulled out, holes closed, fiberglass tape over the fillets etc.

It worked for me. But I guess like always you know more about me and my boat than I do......

I do indeed... use the Force etc. !

But seriously, you could just explain how you stitched 20mm thick panels with screws. I am thinking you put them in under an angle to go from the face of part A into the edge of part B ? That would obviously not work with the 4mm plywood often used for the stitch and glue projects... So yes, I think you are talking about something else than the method under discussion here... the 20mm thick panels hint me to that.

ciao!
Nick.

Same method, different scale. Drywall screws make perfect sense to me for much thicker ply than normally used for stitch and glue, ie for a much bigger boat build. Obviously it wouldn't work for the kayak and dinghy sized ply. Why you would ever want to build a boat that size in stitch and glue is a different question.
