Offers detailed plans and instructions for building a simple boat at low cost with easily obtainable materials and basic hand tools, the skiff in this manual is 15 feet in length, can hold two adults or several children, and is adaptable for oars, sail, or a small outboard engine. A fun way to spend a weekend and get an excellent small boat easily and inexpensively, it is a great family project, ideal for introductory boat-building courses and for community and school-based boat-building experiences.
