Learn the Ins and Outs of Building Lapstrake, Carvel, Stitch-and-Glue, Strip-Planked, and Other Wooden Boats Whether you are contemplating your first-ever boatbuilding project or trying to decide what design you'd like to build next, Greg Rössel can help. Here's just a glimpse of what's inside this complete overview of wooden boatbuilding: How rowing, sailing, paddling, and powerboat designs perform, and how they compare in cost, time, and necessary skills for building How wooden boats are built, including the pros and cons of carvel, lapstrake, dory lap, stitch and glue, strip plank, and other methods How to choose the best boat and building method for your next project How to loft a hull, steam bend frames, scarf a joint, cut a rabbet, laminate stems, and spile planks How to take the lines off an old classic whose plans have been lost How to make oars, spars, coamings, knees, gaff jaws, cleats, and more Greg Rössel writes with warmth, wit, and an engaging style. The Boatbuilder's Apprentice is a must guide for anyone planning or even dreaming about building a wooden boat. “Greg Rössel is a Renaissance man. While there are many talented boatbuilders in the world, only a handful are also good teachers. Even fewer can write or illustrate effectively. Yet this author is highly skilled in each of these areas. . . . The Boatbuilder's Apprentice is a successful blend of technique and wisdom, and is, I believe, destined to become a classic.”-Karen Wales, WoodenBoat Review

At last a paperback edition of this standard work on marine archaeology. Séan McGrail's study received exceptional critical acclaim when it was first published in hardback in 1987 and it is now revised and published in paperback for the first time. Professor McGrail provides an authoritative survey of water transport across Northern Europe from the Late Palaeolithic to the later Middle Ages, using evidence of excavations, but also documentary sources, iconographic and ethnographic evidence. In the process he answers such key questions as How were these boats built? What sort of environment were they used in? What speeds could they achieve? and how were they navigated?

Half Hull Modeling

Long before half-hull models became a staple of marine museums and living room walls, they were an essential tool for marine designers and shipbuilders alike. Indeed, the models offered not only a three-dimensional scale rendering of the completed vessel but also a set of comprehensive construction plans for the shipwright. Even in these days of CAD and 3-D printers, the model can still serve today's builders by offering the opportunity to see what they are getting into and what the lines on their blueprints are actually saying. For the boat owner (or prospective boat owner), building a model can be a great way to spend some cold winter evenings carving an accurate and handsome rendition of the boat of their dreams. Half-Hull Modeling takes the reader through the entire process of making an accurate half model: history, tools, woods, safety, finishes, construction jigs, interpreting and working with lines plans, patternmaking, and constructing both waterline and buttock lift models. For those who already own a classic model and would like to build a replica, the book also offers instructions on how to build a measuring device to capture the lines of a hull and develop a set of lines plans.
