For nearly 30 years, Devlin’s Boatbuilding Manual has been walking backyard boat builders like you through the process of creating a beautiful, seaworthy vessel with your own hands. This popular guide focuses on the stitch-and-glue process–a simpler, cheaper method than plank-on-frame and cold-molded construction–that produces the same stunning results.

Now, master boat builder Sam Devlin has updated his classic work with critical insights, information, and refinements he has learned over the decades, including:

Step-by-step look at the process from start to finish
Tested new ideas to streamline the building process
New insights on stitch-and-glue building from the amateur’s perspective
Additional materials and tools for expanding your building/finishing options
Fresh ideas for constructing cabins and pilothouses
More in-depth coverage of maintenance and repair
Expanded appendix showing the range of stitch-and-glue boats
Whether you’re looking to build a seven-foot dinghy or a 50-foot motor cruiser, Devlin’s Boatbuilding Manual provides proven plans and expert advice to get the job done–and get it done well.

Boat building enthusiasts will enjoy seeing the stitch-and-glue method applied to such larger vessels as powerboats and sailboats, and DIY hobbyists interested in building their first boat will find more instruction than in the previous edition. This updated edition also features, a revised painting section, coverage on the latest epoxies and resins and how to work with them, and an expanded design section showing the broad range of sizes and types of boats now buildable with this technique.
