The next year, the attraction got upgrades including new boats, new effects, and the ride was even longer. How to Build a Boat, Wooden Boat Building methods for the DIY, backyard, self-builders explained, carvel, lapstrake and plywood Carvel Planking the Classic Wooden Boat Hull. Why Carvel Planked wooden boats have stood the test of time, and its basic components.

    This is a fascinating book full retired small boats and their stories. The photographs are good and varied and the stories are varied and interesting summarizing the fate of these Norwegian boats and the people who worked them. The sentence on page 3 is worth the price of the book "That year he died-far too soon-as most fathers do.".   Dolin’s written about “iron men in wooden boats,” the pirate life, the Frankenfish and the “exotic history of tea, drugs and money,” to name a few of his more than a dozen non-fiction.
