Harold H Payson

Harold "Dynamite" Payson was a lobsterman off his native Maine coast for many years before becoming a full-time boatbuilder; the sea and his shop have kindled in him a fond respect for the simplest, most direct course to one's desired destination. This philosophy he has imparted in two previous books, "Instant Boats" and "Go Build Your Own Boat!", and in many articles for "National Fisherman", "WoodenBoat", and "Small Boat Journal". His most recent book is "Boat Modeling the Easy Way".
