Description: Clinker Plywood Boatbuilding Manual is encompassing enough to guide you through any lapstrake (aka Clinker) boatbuilding project. It covers tools and materials needed, lining off, setting up the building jig, planking, interior work, and fitting out. There are hundreds of drawings, hundreds of photos, and it's dosed liberally with Iain's pragmatic experience.
Iain Oughtred is the well-known designer of elegant glued-lapstrake plywood boats, including the Acorn Skiffs, Gray Seal, Caledonia Yawl, Whilly Boat, and more. We have been offering his detailed boatbuilding plans for years, so the book was a natural fit. And, you may have noticed many of his designs in Wooden Boat magazine's Launchings column. With the book in hand and a set of his plans, you can hardly go wrong.
Additional info: THE AUTHOR
After a successful career in centreboard racing dinghies, Iain Oughtred became one of the leading lights of the British wooden boat revival, designing, building and sailing much remarkable craft. These boats have gained a worldwide reputation for their elegance of line, sound construction, and excellent sailing performance. His perfectionist approach may be unbusinesslike but provides highly refined designs and detailed plans. In this he hopes to encourage a return to a deep appreciation of traditional values of craftsmanship, believing this is a vital part of the true education, and thus helps to nourish the human spirit in an impoverished age.
