Building a stitch-and-glue boat brings you as close as you'll ever get to instant boatbuilding. It's the fastest, easiest method yet devised for creating a strong, beautiful, seaworthy craft with your own hands. Now, one of the world's premier stitch-and-glue designers, builders, and teachers gives you the information and guidance you need to build the boat of your dreams in your backyard, basement, or garage. Chris Kulczycki explains why you don't need to be a master craftsman with dozens of specialized tools to creat a sleek, responsive small boat. He lays out the basic stitch-and-glue building techniques; outlines the shortcuts and pitfalls; and details the materials you'll need. Then he guides you through each phase of the building process, from cutting plywood panels and stitching them together to gluing the seams with epoxy to fiberglassing, sanding, painting, finishing, and outfitting.
