"Building a wooden boat is a deeply satisfying creative pursuit and one of the pinnacles of that near-relative of art -- craftsmanship. Larry Pardey dismisses the common moan that the traditional skills of this particular craftmanship are lost. Nor, he shows, is there anything mysterious about them; they can be easily learned. Perhaps the most valuable quality of the book is the way it passes on vital know-how about details of construction methods and the relative importance of particular items and aspects". -- Lloyds List, LondonFrom the Publisher:
