9780071823050: Buehler's Backyard Boatbuilding for the 21st Century

"Build wooden boats the Buehler way, which is to say inexpensively, yet like the proverbial brick outhouse." -- Wooden Boat

"A WEALTH OF VALUABLE INFORMATION." -- American Sailing Association

The classic and definitive guide for the home boatbuilder--now updated

Everybody has the dream: Build a boat in the backyard and sail off to join the happy campers of Pogo Pogo, right? But how? Assuming you aren't independently wealthy, if you want a boat that is really you, you gotta build it yourself. With irreverent wit and an engaging style, George Buehler shows you how to turn your backyard into a boatyard. Buehler draws his inspiration from centuries of workboat construction, where semiskilled fishermen built rugged, economical boats from everyday materials in their own backyards, and went to sea in them in all kinds of weather.

Buehler's boats sail on every ocean and perform every task, from long-term liveaboards in Norwegian fjords to a traveling doctor's office in Alaska. The book contains complete plans for ten cruising boats--from an 18-foot schooner to a 48-foot Diesel Duck.

For more than a quarter century, backyard boatbuilders have turned to George Buehler's acclaimed DIY guide for expert advice, step-by-step instructions, and the author's irreverent, no-nonsense commentary. Whether you're experienced or unskilled, over-budget or under-financed, into sailing or powerboats, you'll find everything you need to start building--and finish that boat--in one essential guide. Now updated for the 21st century, the undisputed "bible" for boatbuilders is more comprehensive, more practical, and more fun than ever. You'll find:

  • 10 new, practical, rugged, and ready-to-build designs--including Buehler’s popular Diesel Duck--with full plans and scantlings
  • Up-to-date commentary on the latest materials--epoxies, sealants, metals, fastenings, and more
  • Step-by-step guidance on choosing the size, complexity, and design that's right for your skillset, your workshop, and your wallet
  • Stem-to-stern, inside-and-out tips on lofting, framing up, planking, decking, hatches, keels, bolt-ons, finishes, rigging, outfitting, and launching--everything you need to know!

Jam-packed with photographs, helpful diagrams, and cost-effective techniques, this is a must-have reference for today’s boatbuilders or those curious "makers" tinkering around the backyard. If you want to build that boat of your dreams, you can't find a better guide than Buehler's.

"Immensely practical...clear and concise." -- Sailing

"Everyone will revere this book." -- The Ensign

George Buehler was born in Oregon in 1948, and has been messing around with boats ever since his sainted mother gave him a copy of Scuppers the Sea Dog. Buehler is an accomplished yacht designer who lives on Whidbey Island, Washington.
