Title: Boatbuilding Manual
Author: Robert M. Steward
With more than 60,000 copies sold, Boatbuilding Manual is one of the most widely read texts on the subject, and it has been used for years as a standard reference at both boatbuilding and design schools.
A builder and designer for more than 55 years, Robert Steward has rare abilities as a writer and draftsman. His phrasing is clear and easy, and he writes the absolute minimum necessary for a complete understanding of the subject.
His drawings are detailed yet uncluttered; they reward each increment of study with further revelations.
This fourth edition, like its predecessors, emphasizes traditional wooden construction but laso surveys plywood, wood - epoxy, fibreglass, steel, aluminum and other boatbuilding methods.
