From the Back Cover:

First published in 1911, D.C. Beard's classic how-to was designed to help boys build small craft ranging from a log raft to a houseboat. Based on the age of his audience, Beard assumed only the most basic of skills from potential builders, and his resulting directions and plans have become a classic in the school of "quick and dirty" boatbuilding.

Inside this small volume you'll find building directions for:"

* The Logomaran, a single-log raft with outriggers
* The "Man-Friday" rowing raft
* The "Crusoe " raft with full stern and covered cabin
* The "Chump's raft, developed to teach swimming
* The "Sailing Raft" for crossing lakes
* Slab and Dugout canoes
* War Canoe
* Folding Canoe
* Birch-Bark or Canvas Canoe
* Paddling Dory
* A "Yankee Pine" for rowing or outboard
* The "Rough and Ready," a small daysailer
* A "Cheap and Speedy Motor-Boat," and
* The "American Boys House Boat"

In addition, Beard covers the basics of nautical safety, sailing, and basic seamanship; how to rig a small boat or canoe for sailing; and a handy guide to knots for almost any nautical or harbor situation.

About the Author:

A Progressive-era reformer, outdoorsman, illustrator, and author, Daniel Carter Beard was known to millions of Boy Scouts as "Uncle Dan, the groups first National Commissioner, a post he held until his death in 1941.

Beard began a career as an illustrator with the Sanborn Map and Publishing Company, and went on to have his illustrations appear in dozens of magazines and newspapers from Harper's Weekly and the New York Herald to children's magazines such as St. Nicholas. In 1881 he was hired by Samuel Clemens to illustrate A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court which was published in 1889.

Before and during his involvement in scouting, Beard authored a number of how-to books including the American Boy's Handy Book; the American Girl's Handy Book'; Shelters, Shacks and Shanties; the Outdoor Handy Book; Jack of All Trades; Do It yourself; and The American Boy's Book of Camp-Lore and Woodcraft among others.

Book Description Dixon Price Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. Daniel Carter Beard (illustrator). 188 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.6in. x 0.5in.PREFACE THIS is not a book for yacht-builders, but it is intended for beginners in the art of boat-building, for boys and men who wish to make something with which they may navigate the waters of ponds, lakes, or streams. It begins with the most primitive crafts composed of slabs or logs and works up to scows, houseboats, skiITs, canoes and simple forms of sailing craft, a motorboat, and there it stops. There are so many books and magazines devoted to the higher arts of ship-building for the graduates to use, besides the many manufacturing houses which furnish all the parts of a sail-boat, yacht, or motor-boat for the ambitious boat-builder to put together himself, that it is unnecessary for the author to invade that territory. Nlany of the designs in this book have appeared in magazines to which the author contributed, or in his ovvn books on general subjects, and all these have been successfully built by hundreds of boys and men. Many of them are the authors own inTable of Contents CONTENTS; CUAPTEa; I How TO CROSS A STREAM ON A Loc; II HOME-ivrADE BOATS; III A RAFT THAT WILL SAIL; IV CAOES; V CANOES AND BOATI: - This item ships from multiple locations.
