9780071461306: The Complete Guide to Metal Boats

Metal boats have the advantage of combining strength with lightness of weight, and the advent of affordable pre-cut steel and aluminium kits has now brought the building of these boats into the domain of the amateur. This book covers all the information you will need to successfully build, renovate, repair or maintain a steel or aluminium boat - whether sail or power. Bruce Roberts-Goodson, one of the most experienced designers of small craft explains: why choose a metal boat, what tools and equipment you will need, different welding techniques for different metals, building from a pre-cut kit, building skegs, keels and pilot houses, how to select and install the correct engine for sail or power, and electrical systems, interiors and corrosion prevention. Packed with explanatory photographs and diagrams, the book also comes complete with a CD of over 1000 construction photos to inspire the reader.
