The fine state of Maine has designated us an "essential business" so we can ship orders! Our showroom remains closed to the public.

We offer many books on boatbuilding. And they run the gamut of methods (carvel, lapstrake, strip, cold-molded, glue-lap-ply, stitch & glue, wood & canvas, skin-on-frame). They teach you how to build so when you buy a set of boatbuilding plans, you'll be able to have at it.

But this collection contains books that are so complete you can build a specific boat right from the book without purchasing a set of plans. Most are written for the beginner boatbuilder or for the builder who wants to get onto the water quickly.
