Here is everything you need to know to construct a carvel planked cruising boat, with no more than a set of plans, a stack of lumber, and a determination. You'll be hard-pressed to find a book which does a better job of telling you how to go about the process. Bud McIntosh had a gift for explaining as well as building and designing. Combine Bud's text with the elegant yet clean drawings of Sam Manning, and you have a classic text, in print for over 25 years.
