A step-by-step pictorial guide to building a seaworthy little skiff. In these days of mass production, engineered efficiency, and white-collar workers, we are removed from apprenticeships and learning from men who have spent their lives learning the craft of boat-building. This was written by one of those men. Includes materials, tools, plans, building, interior finish, paint, varnish and detailed how-to.
