Boatbuilding Books

July 07, 2009

Book Report.

I have Ian Oughtred's book on clinker plywood and the library's copy of Sam Rabl's Boatbuilding in your Own Back Yard

I just ordered Greg Rossel's Building Small Boats and John Gardner's Building Classic Small Craft

I have the following on the wish list:

* John Brooks How to Build Glued Lapstrake Wooden Boats
* George Buehler, Buehler's Backyard Boatbuilding
* Howard Irving Chapelle, Boatbuilding: A Complete Handbook of Wooden Boat Construction
* Ted Brewer, Understanding Boat Design

Brewer's book is not really pertinent to the project, but it was cheap and looks like a great read.

Edit: I ordered Chapelle. I will save Brewer and Buehler for when I want to buy some fun reading.
