About the Author

Former lobsterman on the Maine coast, Harold Harold --Dynamite-- Payson became one of the most influential boatbuilders and authors in the build-it-yourself genre. Specializing in boats easily built in plywood, he expanded his building, saw sharpening books to include several modelmaking how-to's. Payson also taught boatbuilding at the highly regarded WoodenBoat School, on the coast of Maine. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
There are two books I consult for plywood boat construction. They are Instant Boats, and the follow-up, Build the New Instant Boats.

In this volume, you will find chapters on selecting proper tools, some general advice on construction, and a chapter which displays via photographs, the construction of one of the 7 boat projects featured within. The projects themselves, are mainly sailboats, and a kayak.

I have built one sailboat and the kayak featured in this highly useful tome.

Excellent book for all boat builders, not just beginners. Payson's skill and wit, plus Bolger's designs. Go build a boat.

If you've seen plans for Bolger's Teal, this book uses that design to illustrate the "Instant Boat" building method. It would be a great resource for many of the Instant Boat designs.

A great reference for beginners. Pair it with "Boatbuilding for Beginners" by Jim Michalak and you will be off to the races!
