Payson says hat I can build a boat that I can be proud of with some reasonably cheap plywood and polyesther and go sailing for a reasonable $200 or even less. And he's right! I am halfway to my boat in just 20 hours or so and can not be more satisfied.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to try his skills at woodworking and go sailing in a budget. The only reason I don't give it five stars is that the plans are too small and I had to put some working to scale then properly. But the results pretty much are worth the effort.
A book you must have in your library alongside the other greats.
I like plywood and the tape and glue method a lot. The last boat I built was a skin on frame. I built that boat for lightness but by the time I was done it weighted as much as the Rubens Nymph and is nowhere near as useful.
Another thing that bothered me was that you had to read each of the boats constuction details to understand the size and use of the craft. A small picture and the size in the headings would have been helpfull.
Get a hard copy!
And yes, I have built 3 of his boats so far.
