Oughtred, Iain. 2004. Clinker plywood boatbuilding manual. London: Adlard Coles Nautical.
Rarely do I buy a book and get through it in two days, but this manual was a real page turner. We just finished building a plywood lapstrake boat and Oughtred's manual would have been an excellent resource. I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering building a clinker (lapstrake) boat. Comprehensive coverage of Design, tools and materials, glues and finishes, construction and rigging.
