NOW WITH METRIC OFFSETS! Tired of struggling with that heavy plastic kayak? Are you looking for a lightweight boat but not willing to take out a second mortgage to buy it? What if I told you that you could build a boat weighting less than 35 lbs for $300 to $500? You can and in my new book I will show you how. This style was very popular in the 1950's and 1960's and many boat plans appeared in magazines such as Popular Mechanics and Popular Science. Even though it is no longer fashionable in the magazines, the fuselage style of construction is still probably the most cost effective way to build a small boat. Recently I have seen a renewed interest in this type of boat construction. People are rediscovering the advantages of Fuselage style Skin Boats. Fuselage frames boats cost very little to build. A sheet of marine plywood, a lightweight wood such as cedar for the stringers, a few yards of a synthetic fabric for the skin and something to waterproof the skin. Materials for a basic 17' kayak cost around $300. Adding a seat, deck rigging and adjustable footrest would add another $100 to $150 dollars depending on your preferences. For somewhere around $400 you can build a high performance, 30-35 lbs boat. A composite construction canoe or kayak of similar weight would cost thousands of dollars. This book will walk you through the process of building your own Skin on Frame canoe or kayak. I start by addressing the space needed to build a boat as well as tools needed. There is a detailed section on laying out the frames from a table of offsets. Progressing to how to assemble the frame, skinning the boat and through all the steps to preparing your boat for launching. Included are offsets for three of my boat designs. The StoneFly canoe, Curlew, a 15' Sea Kayak and new sea kayak design Pouco Barta.

In it I will show you how to build light weight boats at a very low cost.While my new book covers some of the same material as the first book, it also has some new techniques and of course new boats. One new item is how to build a Fuselage Frame boat with a varnished wood transom.Included are offsets for four of my boat designs. Flyfisher, a small rowing boat. Matilda, a performance rowing boat with a wine glasses shaped varnished wood transom. The Mess-About 12' recreational kayak along with a kids kayak, Tadpole.

Luxury, elegance, speed – these are just a few of the characteristics that one inevitably associates with classic wooden yachts. Even though owning one of these originals may remain out of reach for most of us, models of these "runabouts" can be built by anyone. In this book, Patrick Matthews describes in detail all the steps for building a mahogany yacht based on a kit and thus saves even beginners from the pitfalls of such a construction. But experienced modellers will also appreciate the comprehensive tips – especially in the often-dreaded area of finishing. Many tips on improving kits, but also perspectives on building models according to blueprints round off this book on mahogany yachts in the model. From the content: • Overview of different kits • Tools and workplace • Building a kit • Hull construction and propulsion • Finishing • Details • Drive operation • Drive improvements • Remote control electronics • Improvements • Model gallery • Construction documents • Sources

This work is a comprehensive, heavily illustrated history of the many flying boats and amphibious aircraft designed and built in the United States. It is divided into three chronological sections: the early era (1912–1928), the golden era (1928–1945), and the post-war era (1945–present), with historical overviews of each period. Within each section, individual aircraft types are listed in alphabetical order by manufacturer or builder, with historical background, technical specifications, drawings, and one or more photographs. Appendices cover lesser known flying boat and amphibian types as well as various design concepts that never achieved the flying stage.
