One fo the most popular classic books on the shipbuilding demonstrating the actual design methods and construction techniques. It was originally developed with the purpose of training of the woordworkers and carpenters in the basic aspects of wooden ship construction. The author tried to establish a course useful for the shipbuilders and boatbuilders; he did not try to prepare a complete treatise on the subject so please note that there can be some omissions. However, needless to say that the book will be of great interest for everyone willing to improve their knowledge of ship construction principles, as well as people interested in building ship models.
