I'm a professional boatbuilder and I'll be short.
I bought the first edition a good number of years ago. I re-bought the book each time it was covered of resin or stolen. It's the holy book of the boat builder in wood/epoxy. The chapter about strip planking need more fresh data. The chapter about compounded plywood will make discover a new world to many people but it needs an addition about the cylinder mold which is a variant of the compounded plywood. Camber system is obsolete because is a too lengthy method, as well as cold molded. For fast building take the strip plank. Friendship from Mexico.

Bruce's comments: If you are planning to build using any one of the Wood/Epoxy techniques then you MUST have this book ... I have often used it for reference when preparing plans for building in wood... great book.
