Cold-moulded wood boatbuilding involves bonding together layers of wood veneers or thin planks to make a strong, lightweight and watertight hull. Modern glues, particularly epoxy resins, have recently given cold-moulding a boost and improved its strength for weight and longevity. Strip-planking is a related technique using narrow strips of wood. This book is a practical guide to both methods , staring from the design requirements, necessary tools and working conditions, and choice of lumber through step-by-step construction and repair.
