    20 READY-TO-BUILD BOAT DESIGNS.

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!

More than a decade in the making, it is at once a history of the dory, a practical handbook on how to build a dory, and a compendium of dory designs with full construction details. On these pages can be found details about some of the legendary dory types: Bank dories, Swampscotts, gunning dories, semi-dories, St. Pierre dories, flat-irons, dory skiffs, and batteaux. Its step-by-step illustrations of exceptional clarity make this book unique.
