It's generally agreed that cold-molded construction is the best method for the amateur or low-profile professional interested in building a full-size cruising boat. A truly appropriate technology, cold molding combines the beauty of wood with the low-maintenance characteristics of fiberglass. The New Cold-Molded Boatbuilding is the complete, soup-to-nuts presentation of this process, with chapters detailing every facet of construction-from choosing a design and setting up through engine installation and wiring to launching and sea trials. In addition, the author has streamlined the cold-molding process considerably, producing boats that are more economical, efficient, and sturdy-boats built from native materials that will last the life of the builder and turn heads in harbors around the world.
