This clear, concise guide contains all the essential information anyone is likely to need to build a seaworthy craft with only two hands and the most basic tools. Starting with an introduction to materials, Percy Blandford — a onetime Associate of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and a designer specializing in small craft — takes would-be boat-builders every step of the way, from choosing appropriate materials to sanding and applying the final coat of paint.
A simply worded text — accompanied by the author's own clearly drawn diagrams and other illustrations — covers Clinker, Carvel, and fiberglass construction; plywood boats; molded veneer hulls; internal work; rudders and tillers; spar and oar making; basic ropework; details for installing an inboard motor; and ventilation, gas, and water installations.
First published nearly a half century ago, Blandford's book remains an excellent guide for both beginning and veteran woodworkers.

Reprint of the Stanley Paul, London, 1966 edition.
