This book comprises twelve chapters. Each one dealing progressively with each stage of constructing a boat using the foam core method, from building the jig the boat will be built on, to the finishing of the interior. Not only is the narrative clear and concise, without recourse to digression, it has the amateur builder in mind. By following the procedures laid down it will be possible for anyone with even the least talent on this subject to construct a boat from start to finish. For those who only wish to know how a boat is constructed, then this book is a must.
