Today's Classic. Boatbuilding Down East by John Royal Lowell. How to build, from a builder. Rare to find someone who built boats, had time to share information and who also provided illustrations and photographs of the process. Mr. Lowell starts us off at the pattern making stage of building and takes us through to the finish. My favorite chapter covered the details of caulking.
