9780071573719: Boat Modeling with Dynamite Payson: A Step-by-Step Guide to Building Models of Small Craft

In Boat Modeling with Dynamite Payson, the well-known author/boatbuilder applies his "instant approach" to building tabletop replicas of small rowing and sailing craft suitable for the mantel, mud puddles, or just dreaming. He starts with a simple lobsterboat anyone can build in an hour and progresses through dories, skiffs, catboats, and peapods-there's even a Friendship sloop and a sardine carrier. Dynamite's friendly, no-nonsense instructions and step-by-step photographs, coupled with marine artist Doug Alvord's beautiful drawings, guide the reader through each boat's construction, from stem to stern. The only modeling book written by a real Maine boatbuilder, Dynamite Payson will feed the fantasies and hone the skills of armchair sailors of all ages and degrees of competence, whether as a warm-up to a full-size boatbuilding project, or as an end in itself.

From the Back Cover:

Tired of $250 clipper ship kits that aren't big enough to house a traveling flea circus, and which you'll never finish anyway? Don't want another modeling book by a hobbyist who has never built a real boat or seen salt water? In Boat Modeling With Dynamite Payson, the well-known author/boatbuilder takes his instant approach to building full-size boats down a peg, to tabletop replicas of small rowing and sailing craft suitable for the mantle, mudpuddles, or just dreaming.

To build the beginning modeler's confidence, Dynamite starts with a very simple toy lobsterboat anyone can build in an hour, then walks the reader through a progressively more complex family of models dories, skiffs, catboats, peapods that each introduce a new facet of the craft. Dynamite's friendly, no-nonsense instructions and step-by-step photographs, coupled with marine artist Doug Alvord's handsome drawings, guide the reader through each boat's construction, from stem to stern.

The only modeling book written by a real Maine boatbuilder, Boat Modeling With Dynamite Payson will feed the fantasies and hone the skills of armchair sailors of all ages and degrees of competence, whether as a warm-up to a full-size boatbuilding project, or as an end in itself.

Dear Dynamite:

"Your matter-of-fact style takes boatbuilding from a world of offset tables and woodworking mystique into everyone's backyard shop." Mark Klopfenstein, Fullerton, California

"As a technical writer, I appreciate a book that is well organized, simple, and straightforward in its approach, and uses a minimum of extraneous words . . . Thanks for writing something that a novice can understand without either becoming intimidated or being made to feel stupid." Art Norrington, Clute, Texas

"I have the greatest admiration for your work, for your unusual teaching skills and ability to inspire even the most hardcore procrastinators into action." Sean Gagnier, Mendocino, California

"Not only do you provide excellent information well laid out and very readable but you have the knack of allowing the reader to get to know you as a person an excellent combination of talents." Robert W. Norris, Columbia, Maryland

"I feel like an old friend already! I have just started to read your book for the third time in a week. I am impressed by the simplicity of it all; the method of construction, the design, the clear and humorous instruction." Peter Fitzpatrick, Kelowna, British Columbia

"Carpenters and boatbuilders might be a dollar a dozen, but people like you are a blessing to mankind. You are to boatbuilding what Professor Suzuki was for music and violin playing; opening fields of joy which were before considered the exclusive province of the happy few." Glorieux, Antwerpen, Belgium

From the Inside Flap:

Build seven models based on real boats, with the watchful guidance of Harold "Dynamite" Payson. He as man driven by the pleasure of making things, and has caught "model-itis," and is more than happy to spread his affliction to you.
