Great boats, great book,
This review is from: Building Outrigger Sailing Canoes: Modern Construction Methods for Three Fast, Beautiful Boats (Paperback)
Gary has a wealth of experience designing and building outrigger canoes which he shares in this book. It's not the perfect book for a beginner, some of the basic steps are glossed over and there are a few inconsistencies in the provided dimensions for the boats (if you need more help, order the plans), but if you've experience woodworking or boatbuilding it's a great book. I ended up picking and building the Ulua, a great craft for launching in the surf and cruising up and down the California coast.
