Boatbuilding For Beginners (and beyond) by Jim Michalak -Jim Michalak's long awaited second book is here. Garth Battista, of Breakaway Books, convinced Jim to put down everything he knows about boat building in a professionally printed and bound book. Much of the material comes from Jim's popular online newsletter. It has ten pages of double-size foldout plans at the end, plus it contains full building plans and specifications for Mayfly14, Jonsboat, QT Rowing Skiff, QT Power Skiff, Piragua, and Robote. This book is essential for anyone who builds or even just dreams of building boats. ***Personal Comment - I have this book, and I think it is the greatest thing to come along since sliced cheese ***
