Lapstrake Canoes, black and white book


Product Description

Isn't this the same as Building Lapstrake Canoes? It's not, for two reasons: Lapstrake Canoes deals with a traditionally cedar planked 13-footer as well as a glued lapstrake 15-footer, and this tells their story in photos and text. We added considerably to their building time to make her easier for you to build, interrupting progress hundreds of times to take photos. 297 of the best are  spread over 209 pages measuring 8.5" x 11". The book is comb bound so that it will lay flat on your workbench where it will do you the most good. There's nothing like being able to flip right to the page to see what you're working on and the following steps. Contents include:

Chapter 1 Making the Moulds
Chapter 2 Setting Up
Chapter 3 Essentials
Chapter 4 Planking
Chapter 5 Ribs & Rails
Chapter 6 Finishing Up
Chapter 7 Launching

Here are a couple of pages from the book...You can compare this to what these same pages look like in the full color book and on the CD.
