Ever wanted to look inside a wooden boat builder's workshop for a look at construction methods? Well here is the opportunity. Whilst building the 2 Gartside 10 traditional clinker dinghies Whisper and Mischief, we kept a comprehensive photo record of everything from lofting to launching. We have compiled everything into an extensive digital guide (HTML format) with over 700 high definition photos and plenty of text on the construction process. The revised edition contains additional photos and information from the building of Mischief, the second of these two lovely dinghies.
See methods such as stems being cut from grown crooks, planking, steaming and steam boxes, spiling plank shapes, roving and much more. Great to look at if you are interested in this type of construction.
This would make an excellent christmas or birthday present for the nautically inclined.
Since it was originally published in 2006 over 800 have been sold and many buyers have gone on to build or repair their own boats using this as a guide.
This was previosuly supplied on a CD, however due to todays the lack of CD readers, it is currently being supplied on a USB stick.
We also post worldwide, please contact us for pricing.
"Hi Andrew, I CD recieved AOK and an absolutely excellent record - and a most traditional build."
"Recieved the CD, it is excellent...the info is already in use as I am making a new transom for a 16ft clinker I am also restoring so the section on the backbone was great"
"Hi Andrew, I received the cd as promised and have read it through. It is a wonderful product that really clarifies the process of construction. Thanks again for a great cd."
"Hi Andrew, I wanted to let you know how great I think your CD is. I've had time to have a really good look at the whole thing several times over, it's going to be something I look at before each stage of my project."
