Description: Here are study plans and specifications for 53 sailboats, vboats, and powerboats—selected by the editors of International Marine for excellence in design and practicality for the home builder. Sources for complete building plans are included for each boat.
Step one in the challenging, satisfying process of building your own good boat is to select a good design. It’s a step that is a lot of fun. You pore over boat plans in books and magazines, picture the finished boat in your mind’s eye, and then, still in imagination, take her out on the water for trials in different sea conditions under power, oar, or sail.
Sooner or later, though, you have to stop all this day-dreaming and get down to business. You have to choose your design and get the large-scale plans from which you can build your boat. A common frustration at this stage is the discovery that no such large-scale plans are available. This book eliminates that frustration. For each of the 53 designs presented, there are plans for building; a list of addresses of the designers or other sources of the plans appears at the back of the book.
So, return to step one, study these plans, pore over the ones that appeal to you, and enjoy your vicarious sea trials. You may well want to choose a fine vessel, send for her building plans, and sharpen your tools.
