A complete how-to manual covering all phases of building and finishing six versions of a 12-, 13- or 14-foot arc-bottom canoe. It includes dimensioned hull plans, a detailed building sequence heavily illustrated with step-by-step photographs, tips and techniques for painting and varnishing, and hard-to-find background and reference material. Anyone with a few basic hand and electric tools and a small workshop or one-car garage can undertake this project for any level of boatbuilding or canoeing experience.
