This is a fun book to read. The illustrations are well-done and it is well-written. This book is perfect for those who want to build a row boat with traditional methods or just enjoy reading about how they are constructed.

Building a small wooden boat is about as far left as you can go. A one off wooden piece with craftsmanship stressed boatbuilding grows addictive, but has very little dollar value. Making one is a truly worthwhile endeavor. Mine took almost 3 months and I used all my spare time making it and loving the whole process. Even when my measurements came out cockeyed, I found solutions and persevered. I still have the boat and get a little charge everytime I see it and admire its lines. I made mine with good assorted hardwoods and it rows really nice and took a trolling motor and a 4hp pretty good. The book reflects the love and labor the author expends in creation. It doen't gush just explains and is awfully nice. A worthy addition. I might try it again one day.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
