|By Thomas Hill
For many years this was the only text available on the
'new' plywood and epoxy construction techniques for small boats.
Hill developed his own special techniques for this type of construction
and the book remains an essential guide for the beginner. Now in its
17th printing, it has inspired thousands to build their own boats over a
twenty year period.
Chapters cover Glued Plywood Lapstrake
Construction, Tools and Workspace, Lofting, Jig Building, Scarfing,
Stems, Chines, Transom and Keelson, Planking, Joinerwork, Spars, Rudders
and Tillers, Paint and Varnish.
Appendices cover Sharpening Tools, A
Gallery of Designs, and Sources. Extremely well written, this is a book
you will turn to time and time again for guidance on the many techniques
required to build a good looking well constructed small boat.
