5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and instructive!, 14 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Ultralight Boatbuilding (Paperback)
Thomas Hill hit the nail on the head with this book.
Having never built a boat before but thinking about it I picked up this book. I was not disappointed. It does not show the patterns required etc. but what it does give are clearly explained methods for build ultralight boat out of plywood and epoxy, which can be transferred to building other small vessels. The text is very clear but some of the photos leave a bit to be desired.
The book walks the reader through the steps needed to build a canoe and a flat-bottomed skiff and therefore covering most of the steps needed for most ultralight boats. This book was very clear, even for someone like me who has minimal woodworking skills (Experience = 6months of playing) but who dreams of building their own boat.
The appendix are also very helpful in pointing out sources of patterns but all address for other materials are in the US. However, products are named throughout the book.
One final point, if you are looking for detail in how to loft a boat then look at Vaitses book on lofting. This book only gives a quick overview on the subject.
