Author: Arthur Edmunds
Arthur Edmunds is one of the country’s top naval architects and his knowledge of the boat building industry has never been more apparent than in this book.
Art has written this book so the reader, unfamiliar with the construction process, will understand every aspect of the process. But this is not a beginner’s only boat building book. Advanced craftsmen and top professionals have equally as much to learn from Art’s years of experience.
Art takes the reader from the first step of Building a Fiberglass Boat to the last step, in a manner that will certainly inspire all who ever pondered the notion. He expertly explains why a competent craftsman would want to undertake the, seemingly, overwhelming task of building their own boat.
Art has described the two most popular sizes and styles of boats as examples for the project; a twenty-five foot open boat and a thirty-three foot cruising boat. Sail is also explained, although there is little difference in the basic construction methods. By referring to these example boats, the reader can envision a boat of any size, limited only by the reader’s imagination and wallet thickness.
Everyone can learn from this book. If you have a boat just waiting to be built, you will now have the knowledge. If you never plan to build a boat, you will understand the entire process, making the "Buying Experience" far less confusing.
There are no "Trade Secrets", only knowledge not yet learned. Illustrated.
