I may never actually build any of the boats shown in this book, but I've gotten tremendous enjoyment -- and learned a great deal about the various types of boat hulls, rigs and construction -- while perusing the pages."

    The New Cold-Molded Boatbuilding : From Lofting to Launching
    Reuel Parker, an innovative professional boatbuilder from Florida, has devised a method that uses readily available, self-fairing tongue-and-groove lumber, epoxy sealed and stiffened by two layers of inexpensive plywood topped with glass cloth and epoxy. The result is a rugged, spare, clean hull that needs no framework and is much easier and cheaper to build than a conventional cold-molded boat.
