Overview

This vintage book is a complete and accessible guide to boat construction, with full instructions for designing and building punts, skiffs, canoes, sailing boats, and more. With detailed working drawings and simple, step-by-step instructions, this volume is ideal for those with little previous experience, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Introductory—Designing”, “Tools and Materials”, “Punts”, “Clench-Built Skiffs”, “The Rob Roy Canoe”, “The Sailing Boat”, “Canadian Bateau—Canvas Canoe—American Shooting Punt”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing “Practical Boat Building for Amateurs” now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on constructing boats.
