Very Useful

I purchased this book almost twenty years ago to offer a boat building class. We built a perfect little lapstrake in five days of classes. This is a great guide for builders of any level.


Ultralight Boatbuilding

Excellent, clearly written and well illustrated. Lots of techniques applicable to more general boatbuilding than the title would suggest are described and explained fully. Tools and materials discussed at length and authoritatively. Some very good looking boat designs included in appendix, but I'd have appreciated a little more detail here - body forms, lines, etc. I've already found this book useful and am sure that I will be referring to it many times in the future.
