From Our Editors

Perhaps the most satisfying task in wooden boat building is planking, as this is the point when all the planning that went into the boat bears fruit. Finally, all the elements are here -- the flowing lines, the lovely sheer, the enclosed space. Now it looks like a boat. Gathered in is the information necessary for preparing to plank, clamping the planks in place, fastening the planks to the structure, and finishing off. The advice is based on actual projects, some large, some small; the advisors are all expert wooden boat-builders. Planking methods shown; Carvel, Lapstrake, Sheet Plywood, Plywood Lapstrake, Ultralight Plywood, Stitch & Glue, Wedge-Seam, Cold-Molded, Diagonal, and Strip. This book is a gold mine of information of a new boat or the repair of an old one. Now can fix-up that boat you sailed as a kid.
