Synopsis:

An essential reference for the carpentry enthusiast ready to embark on a maritime challenge

Clinker boats have a long history and were notably used by the Vikings, making them a romantic and traditional sight on the water. Their popularity has endured because of the elegance and strength of their construction. With thriving interest in these boats today, this book gives practical instruction on how to build them and celebrates their proud history. Written by a passionate sailor and boat builder, it combines the joys of carpentry with the sense of accomplishment of sailing your very own craft. No previous boat-building knowledge is assumed, traditional and current building techniques are explained, and it also offers a guide to rigging, finishing, and maintenance.

About the Author: Martin Seymour gained shipwright's training in a boat yard and went on to gain practical experience in traditional timber. He ran a training school in Polynesia and a sailing school for 20 years in Tasmania before retiring. As a keen student of maritime and ancient history, he continues to write on the subject, including material for yachting periodicals.
