Product description

Boatbuilding is a practical handbook and boatshop assistant, designed and written to meet the needs of the builder, covering the complete process of wooden boat construction.

The text covers all types of craft from flat-bottom rowboats to ocean cruisers and commercial vessels, and aids the builder in overcoming difficulties and discouraging delays resulting from the lack of easily available information on the practical side of boatbuilding. Boatbuilding gives detailed instructions, with many illustrations, on all phases of boatbuilding written out of actual boatbuilding practice and aids the builder in planning each job in its proper sequence in relation to those that follow. After a chapter discussing the choice of plans suitable for amateur work there are chapters on lofting, the backbone and setting up, flat-bottom hull construction, V-bottom hull construction, round-bottom hull construction, deck framing and building, special construction (plywood, strip planking, lap-strake, diagonal, ribband carvel, canvas), heavy construction, joiner-work, iron-work, and spar making. Each chapter is organized for easy and quick reference, and the book is completely indexed. An added feature is the inclusion of building plans for nineteen boats designed for this book and suitable for amateur building. Illustrated throughout

Published by FriesenPress 2012

ISBN 9781770974067,1770974067
200 pages

Wooden Boat Building recounts the joy of acquiring new skills, such as, working with brass flat bar and stainless steel; how to melt 2,400 pounds of lead wheel-weights to pour the keel; how to roll a hull effortlessly and craft beautiful blocks, almost entirely out of wood, yet strong enough to take an enormous load. The author's lessons learned have application for all back-yard wooden boat builders. Practical advice and helpful hints gathered over a life time of wood working and illustrated here with professionally drawn sketches and pictures are useful to all who love to work with wood, whatever the project.
