This vintage book is a complete and beginner-friendly guide to building boats, with information on the design and construction of a rowing ?flattie?, a V-bottomed sailing dinghy, a moulded pram, and more. It was designed for those looking to build a boat on a budget and without special tools, and was written by an amateur with actual experience building twelve boats. Contents include: ?Hints on Designing?, ?Sequence and Method in Building?, ?How to Build a Dinghy Flattie?, ?Finishing Details?, ?How to Build a V-Quartered Sailing Dinghy?, ?How to Build a Moulded Pram Dinghy?, ?How to Build an Outboard Run-About?, and ?How to Build a Dagger-Trunk?. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on boat building.
