Kayaks You Can Build by Ted Moores & Greg Rossel
In this well written and illustrated, hard cover, four color book Ted and Greg give us everything we need to know about building Stitch n Glue and Kayaks. First there is a little history of the hard chined kayak, then the reader is taken through many of the common procedures for most plywood kayak kits (drilling holes, joining planks, applying epoxy). Finally, the authors build three different kayaks from kits supplied by three different manufacturers, one of which is a Hybrid.
Especially helpful are the hints, tricks, and techniques that are highlighted every few pages. Even if you have already built a plywood kayak you will find this book very useful and educational.
