Amateur Boat Building (Paperback)
This vintage book is a complete guide to small sailing craft, with a focus on the construction thereof. Written for the amateur boat builder, this handbook is intended to cover all the problems commonly faced by those who attempt to build a boat of their own design, and will be of considerable value to anyone occupied in such an endeavour. Contents include: "General Introduction", "First Stages in Building", "Erecting and Planking", "Miscellaneous Jobs and Tools", "Completing the Hard Chine Runabout", "Timbers, Tools and Some Useful Hints", "Building a 3-Tonner", "Construction of a Larger Hull", "Construction of a Larger Hull", "Miscellaneous", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on boat building.
