There’s a new book coming out concerning wooden boat building that looks like it might be worth a look… from Amazon:


Your single source for all the ways to build a wooden boat

Even the most inspired novice boatbuilder faces complex practical questions that can scuttle the project before it begins. The Boatbuilder’s Apprentice gets you over the hump with solid, practical answers to your every question. It covers the essentials of every boatbuilding project–tools, wood, fasteners, adhesives, coatings, and safety–and shows how each construction method proceeds, how to overcome problems and challenges, and how to work efficiently.
