Wooden Boat Building

Wooden Boat Building

Garry, Jean-Francois

Synopsis:
The inaugural title in our exclusive new series of books about traditional boats and traditional seamanship. Wooden boats didn't disappear with the invention of GRP. Building them is a classic craft that attracts people with a keen interest in traditional boats and is a thriving activity amongst professional craftsmen and DIY boatbuilders alike.

This thoroughly modern book aimed at the novice builder and accessible to the amateur takes a fresh new approach to a timeless activity. The focus is on classic boat construction and restoration, but at all stages modern methods, materials and techniques are employed, together with step-by-step diagrams and explanations. Well illustrated with colour photos and detailed close-up watercolour illustrations, this book will be invaluable for students of boat design and construction, do-it-yourself boatbuilders and even modelmakers.

A landmark in wooden boat building books.
