Volume II of Plans & Dreams contains complete building plans for 20 small boats. They were first published together with the accompanying essays in the British magazine Water Craft. All the designs are professional plans, drawn with the amateur builder in mind. Accompanying essays provide tips on technique and building procedure that should prove useful to first-time builders.
The projects in this collection range from an 8ft. Childís Rowboat to a 43ft. Steel Motor Sailer, the latter clearly pushing the limits for a part-time builder. Still, it never hurts to dream, and this volume should provide ample stimulus to do just!
