Author: Harold H. Payson

Well-known author/boatbuilder, Dynamite Payson applies his "instant approach" to building replicas of small rowing and sailing craft. He starts with a simple lobsterboat that anyone can build in an hour and progresses through dories, skiffs, catboats, peapods, a sloop and a sardine carrier. Dynamite’s friendly, no-nonsense instructions and step-by-step photos guide the reader easily through each boat’s construction.
