Changes and Corrections

Despite my best efforts some errors found their way into the offsets published for not just one, but all three boats in the book.

Form #1 of the Coot has the offsets shifted around a bit. They should be as shown below:

Introduction

Let's get this clear from the start: it is a waste of time to build your own wooden boat. These days there are far quicker ways to get yourself on the water than going down to a basement shop, fooling around with a bunch of weird tools, making a big mess, and spending time being careful to do it right. You can go out to the local boating store and buy a boat ready to go that will be perfectly serviceable, getting you where you want to go with a lot less fuss and bother.
