Perhaps the most satisfying task in wooden boat building is planking, as this is the point when all the planning that went into the boat bears fruit.
Finally, all the elements are here-the flowing lines, the lovely sheer, the enclosed space. Now it looks like a boat. Gathered here is the information necessary for preparing to plank, clamping the planks in place, fastening the planks to the structure, and finishing off. The advice is based on actual projects, some large, some small; the advisors are all expert wooden boatbuilders. This book is a gold mine of information that will help and encourage readers with the building of a new boat or the repair of an old one.
Part of The WoodenBoat Series, this book is a compilation of articles that have appeared in WoodenBoat magazine.
