Amazing Jan 17, 2008
This book is amazing, it truely does exactly what it says it will do. With no experience, my wife and I followed the instructions in this book and built a beautiful 16' "Bobs Special". When I thought I saw a better way to do something, I followed Moores' instructions instead. Everything he described worked perfectly the first time and I never substituted my way. Our canoe paddles like a cloud. I recently purchased a second copy of this book for my older son. We expect to start on his canoe soon.
As a side note to the book: When you build a canoe with their book and plans you are not alone. I talked to both Moores and Mohr with questions while we were building. I also communicated with their chief designer before we started. You can't go wrong with this system and book.
