by Steward, Robert M.
5th ed. Boatbuilding and design schools often use Stewards’ manual as their textbook. The author emphasizes building in wood but also surveys plywood, wood-epoxy, fibreglass, steel, aluminum, and other materials. Updated for the first time in 15 years (by Carl Cramer), the text now also covers wood-epoxy construction. (A working knowledge of basic building practices is assumed.)
