Overview

Learn the Ins and Outs of Building Lapstrake, Carvel, Stitch-and-Glue, Strip-Planked, and Other Wooden Boats

Whether you are contemplating your first-ever boatbuilding project or trying to decide what design you'd like to build next, Greg Rossel can help. Here's just a glimpse of what's inside this complete overview of wooden boatbuilding:

  • How rowing, sailing, paddling, and powerboat designs perform, and how they compare in cost, time, and necessary skills for building
  • How wooden boats are built, including the pros and cons of carvel, lapstrake, dory lap, stitch and glue, strip plank, and other methods
  • How to choose the best boat and building method for your next project
  • How to loft a hull, steam bend frames, scarf a joint, cut a rabbet, laminate stems, and spile planks
  • How to take the lines off an old classic whose plans have been lost
  • How to make oars, spars, coamings, knees, gaff jaws, cleats, and more

Greg Rossel writes with warmth, wit, and an engaging style. The Boatbuilder's Apprentice is a must guide for anyone planning or even dreaming about building a wooden boat.

"Greg Rossel is a Renaissance man. While there are many talented boatbuilders in the world, only a handful are also good teachers. Even fewer can write or illustrate effectively. Yet this author is highly skilled in each of these areas. . . . The Boatbuilder's Apprentice is a successful blend of technique and wisdom, and is, I believe, destined to become a classic."-Karen Wales, WoodenBoat Review
