Product description

Product Description

Get started, with your next home project. Build yourself a boat!

Playing around on the water in a small boat is a lot of fun. But what makes it even more special, is when you built the boat yourself. Building a boat is different from other woodworking projects.

Once finished and in the water, a boat comes alive. When you launch a boat, you will find she has a personality of her own, the way she handles on the water and moves at speed. Each hull is different. Creating a craft that will take you places and protect you from the elements as you go is extremely rewarding. It’s easy to fall in love with a boat.

And building a small boat is easier than you think. With tools, you probably already have at home and a small amount of inexpensive material, you can be on the water in no time and without spending a lot of money.

In the book, you’ll learn:

  • How to build a boat, from anybody’s plans
  • Design considerations - size and hull shape
  • What tools you need
  • What materials are most suitable, for creating a boat at home
  • Safety - how to work safely (so you can go on to build more!)
  • How to paint and protect your boat
  • Best practices - for working with epoxy resin and fillers

Boat builder and marine engineer, Tim Weston explains in easy to understand terms, all you need to know to prepare for and get started, building yourself a boat, even if you’ve never built anything before.

A practical, step-by-step guide to building wooden boats. Written for the first time builder, and full of in-depth technical information for the experienced builder too.

Buy the book and get started, building your boat!
