Publisher Comments:

This practical handbook is perfect for beginners with minimal skills in the art of boat-building. It's also a valuable guide for scouts, campers, and outdoors enthusiasts. From simple rafts to powered craft, the author enthusiastically details construction and operation dos and don'ts. Along with instructions for building basic log rafts that sail, birch-bark and canvas canoes, a simple rowboat, a paddling dory, a small sailboat, a rugged houseboat, and a "cheap and speedy" motor-boat, this useful book also provides basic instructions on nautical safety, knot-tying, rigging a small boat, seamanship, canoe paddling, and sailing.

A Progressive-era reformer, outdoorsman, illustrator, and author, Daniel Carter Beard was known to millions of Boy Scouts as "Uncle Dan," the group's first National Commissioner--a post he held until his death in 1941.
