Hi fragi. Are you referring to the glue battens? If so then I think the answer is yes you can use smaller pieces. I myself like using single pieces. When they need to follow the curve of the hull and the curve is rather severe, I make small cuts to make them bend more easily. Clamping might seem difficult if not impossible when a glue batten is far from an edge but all you will need is one long piece of wood to extend the clamp and a smaller piece to serve as a fulcrum. Sorry I can't seem to find a picture. In some cases you can also use screws to hold them in place temporarily.

It's sheer clamp, you can see the name on B281/7.
If you can't make it in one piece, then you must laminate it from several layers with offset seams for a total thickness of 20 mm.
It doesn't matter if it is 18 or 22 mm, just get close.
