Excellent book on boatbuilding

Amazing good detail in text and lots of photos. Beautifully photographed. Well written with a twist of British humor on the edges. I'm calling it a must have for my library. Suggesting same for yours.

Superb book

I am building a boat for the first time. I have purchased Greg Roessel’s book, Bud Macintosh’s, Chapelle’s, etc. This book by Stirling provides just that extra level of detail and advice that you need to get to a good result. Worth every penny.
