Clinker built boats

Postby Doug » Mon May 02, 2011 5:02 pm

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some good quality information, in whatever form, about the construction of clinker built boats.

A google search wasn`t that revealing & as i don`t know much about the subject i wouldn`t know good advice from bad.

Thanks.

You might be able to trawl the archives of "wooden boat magazine" which is the bible of the enthusiasts.

Review comment "I'm a trainee shipwright and this book is a standard text for the course. It's very comprehensive and full of useful knowledge".

Thanks for the reply fella`s, most enlightening.

That book looks a good starting point Jacob, though perhaps an edition with legible pictures, cheers.

This blog of a boat build that I followed a year or so ago is good. (you have to start at the bottom and read the posts coming up the page to be in the right order)
