Ideally suited to the amateur builder wanting a good, solid cruising boat, this is a complete "soup-to-nuts" presentation of the cold-molding process, with chapters detailing every facet of construction – from choosing a design and setting-up, through engine installation and wiring, to launching and sea trials. Parker has streamlined the cold-molding process to produce economical sturdy boats.
Out of print for several years, WoodenBoat Publications has brought this classic book back to life. It features a building process which combines strength, beauty, and the workability of wood, with the low-maintenance characteristics of epoxy.
