Overview
Excerpt from A Practical Course in Wooden Boat and Ship Building: The Fundamental and Practical, Methods Described in Detail, Especially Written for and Other
To meet a popular demand for a text-book to assist the great army of house carpenters and other woodworkers in transferring from their usual occupations to the wooden boat and ship building industries, now rapidly developing in this country, and especially for those men who wish to qualify for advanced positions, and for boat and ship builders who wish to broaden their experience in order that they may prepare for greater responsibilities, this work is offered.
The text is the outgrowth and development of a pioneer course organized early in the war by Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N. Y., in response to the demand caused by shortage of skilled labor in these industries.
It was a study to know how to organize the work effectively, to select only those problems that otherwise might take years of labor in the industry for these men to solve, and to present the problems progressively and in such a way that the men would grasp the basic principles in the shortest possible time.
