    How To Build A Wooden Boat

    D
    D.B.
    Quite a book.

    I had heard this was a gem of a book so I took a chance. I heard correctly. More information about building wooden boats than I had ever seen before and all in one place. The sketches are simple but they bring together what you have been reading. I have built a glued plywood boat and really enjoyed that but this is about the way wooden boats were built before plywood and epoxy were thought of. Well worth the money and more importantly the time.
