Featherweight Boatbuilding by Mac McCarthy
Mac McCarthy has been building the Wee Lassie and Wee Lassie II for years in his shop in Sarasota, FL. In the summer he used to travel north to Brookline, Maine to conduct classes at the Woodenboat School. This book is a collection of all of his building tips and information but even more, he describes paddling these canoes in various situations and locations. This book is worth having in your library just for the stories; the building instruction is frosting on the cake.
