9780937822722: How to Build the Ocean Pointer: A Strip-Built 19'6

David Stimson grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and learned boatbuilding while working in the local boatyards. During this time, he developed an eye for boat design from Merton Long, a retired catboat builder who became his friend and mentor. David's love of traditional boats was further inspired by the writings of John Gardner and Pete Culler in the 1970's and by WoodenBoat Magazine. He now lives in Boothbay, Maine, with his wife, Tamora and two teenage boys, Abraham and Nathaniel. He is a sailing charter captain during the summer, and designs and builds boats at Stimson Marine, Inc. in Boothbay.

Book Description Wooden Boat Publications, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 277 x 216 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Based on the Alton Wallace 18 round-bilged outboard skiff known as the West Pointer, the Ocean Pointer is a bit larger, and a significantly drier boat with a sweeping sheer, able to accommodate a 25-75 hp outboard. Designer/builder David Stimson created this boat to be strip-built (narrow pieces of wood), which is an especially forgiving building method for the less experienced builder. This new book provides step-by-step instructions on the building process so the reader will easily be able to determine if this is their ideal craft, and if so inclined, have at it. She ll move nicely through the water, and between that sheer and the aft tumblehome, she has a shape you ll never tire of. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780937822722
