This is a wonderful book.
Payson’s down-to-earth instruction removes the mystery
and makes each step of construction clear and inevitable.
Although I had no previous experience at all,
I built three of these boats with my boys
when they were 9 and 7 years old.
The boats turned out beautifully
and provided our family with a lot of pleasure,
but the real joy was in the building.
I expect to use this same book
to build boats with my grandkids.
