Interesting books I've read in the course of my research into boatbuilding, with links to

Title Author My views
link to Amazon Devlin's Boat Building Samual Devlin This must be THE 'Stitch and Glue' Bible
link to Glen-L Marine BoatBuilding with Plywood 3rd edition Glen L. Witt The perfect complement to 'Devlin's Boat Building'. Only available from Glen-l Marine or a 2nd Hand Bookshop.
link to Amazon Electric Boats -The Handbook of Clean, Quiet Boating Douglas Little Interesting but not inspiring
link to Amazon The Propeller Handbook Dave Gerr Why aren't all propellers ducted?
link to Amazon How to Design a Boat John Teale Before you design your first hull read this book
link to Amazon Building Small Boats Greg Rossel Worth getting just for the tips!
link to Amazon Buehler's Backyard Boatbuilding George Buehler Covers more than just the woodwork aspects
link to Amazon Boat Building: A Complete Handbook of Wooden Boat Construction Howard Chapelle A classic.
link to Amazon How to Restore Your Wooden Runabout Don Danenberg Full of fascinating details. And although it focuses on 'Chris-Craft, the principles are the same.
link to Amazon Woodturning; A foundation course Keith Rowley Recommended by my woodturning tutor; lot's of pictures and drawings. An excellent book. Not strictly applicable to Slipper launches but my wife fancied a new hobby...
This section is nothing to do with Boatbuilding but is a selection of interesting books I've read (when I should have been working on the boat...)
link to Amazon Sam's Teach Yourself HTML and XHTML in 24 hours Dick Oliver Absolutely Brilliant. I gave up with Front Page Express, read this book and built these pages using 1st Page 2000
link to Amazon Sam's Teach Yourself CSS in 24 hours Kynn Bartlett Then to format your HTML you need to use cascading style sheets.
link to Amazon Men and Sheds Gordon Thorburn With the first two years of this site covering the building of the workshop including this book seems quite appropriate. My father thought so and gave me this for Xmas...
link to Amazon Guilt-edged Merlin Minshall When you've had enough of your boat project try this unique autobiography about a real life James Bond. As it's currently out of print try ADE 2nd hand books.
link to Amazon A Narrow Dog to Carcassonne Terry Darlington People who take narrow boats across the English Channel are either very brave or somewhat foolish.
Terry is very entertaining...
Not content with surviving a Channel crossing he's off to sail down the Inland waterways of the East coast of America.
Here's a random selection of boatbuilding books courtesy of amazon or you can search for your own.
