Overview

Using the materials and methods in this ground-breaking book, amateurs and small-scale professionals can build a high-tech colored-laminate boat in less time than it once took just to loft the design for conventional construction. Computers have all but eliminated the onerous lofting stage. And a new manmade "wood" and special marine epoxy glues permit building virtually any hull shape in just days instead of weeks and years. Using Baltek's DuraKore, a precision manufactured balsa-and-hardwood sandwich, each half-hull for Dick Newick's famous 40-foot racing trimaran Ocean Surfer was completed by four people in just six hours. Written in close collaboration with and endorsed by the Baltek Corporation, this is the first book to detail the use of the revolutionary boatbuilding material that has taken the small-scale professional boatbuilding world by storm.
