Gardner was not only good with words and tools,he was a great teacher as well. He sought out the best examples of classic wooden small craft in sheds and backyards across the country,then he measured them,drew them,researched their histories,and wrote out instructions so clear and complete that any amateur builder with modest talent and ambition could build beautiful boats. And thousands have. This commemorative edition contains the texts of Building Classic Small Craft and More Building Classic Small Craft,Volume 1,plus a section of eulogies from Gardner's legions of fans. Here you'll find all the plans,measurements,and directions a reader needs to build any of 47 beautiful small boats for oar,sail,or motor,including dories,peapods,Whitehalls,Rangeley boats,wherries,Sea Bright skiffs,and more.
