Long ago, I read a story where a guy went fishing for "strippers".
Long ago, I read a story where a guy was dating a "striper."
Today, I read a story where a boat needed to be "scrapped."
Also, an agreement was made, "baring" unforeseen events.
It's worth pointing this out: there are a lot of words that differ by only a single repeated letter. Stripper/striper, barring/baring, scraped/scrapped are examples.
If you're using the wrong one, a spell checker probably won't flag it because both forms are valid. A grammar checker might not flag it if both words are the same part of speech (which they will be, if the end with -er, -ed, or -ing).
Your best bet is to remember that a single consonant usually indicates a long vowel in front (baring sounds like bearing or Bering) while a double consonant usually means a short vowel sound (barring sounds like "bar" followed by "ring").
Or, put another way, strippers and stripers can both invole a pole dance, but a "stripper" is a girl you don't take home to mom, while a "striper" is a kind of fish.
Similarly, if you "scraped" a boat you removed the barnacles from the hull, while if you "scrapped" the boat it's in the junkyard now.
