    And, if you are into building half-hull models from waterlines and buttock lines, this book is modeler's heaven. For a handy article on just how to do that, see WoodenBoat #182, where Eric Dow builds the lovely Maid of Endor from the lines drawings. If you don't have that issue, the print version is sold out, but you can download the PDF version of the issue. See below.
