Synopses & Reviews
The beauty of this book is that the construction bugs have already been worked out of the designs. Plans, step-by-step building instructions, materials lists, clear photographs, and detailed diagrams are included; every boat was built before the plans and instructions were published. Many, like the Cartopper, the Flat-Bootomed Skiff, the Caps Charles, and the Wee Lassie, have been built by the hundreds. Follow the building process of ten different designs: a Herreshoff Daysailer, a Lapstrake Plywood Runabout, a Norwegian Pram, a Strip-Built Double-Paddle Canoe, a Cold-Molded Dinghy, a Bareau, and a Double-Paddle Lapstrake Sailing Canoe.
