Another Great John Gardner Book,
This review is from: Building Classic Small Craft: Complete Plans and Instructions for 47 Boats (Hardcover)
This book (actually a collection of two earlier books) is full of great boats with their histories and the plans and instructions to build them. It covers a range of tradional small craft with and emphasis on New England work boats. A variety of construction techniques are discussed. It's a compelling read whether you're looking for a boat to build or just love boats. I couldn't put it down.
