Fuselage Frame Boats: A guide to building skin kayaks and canoes by Jef Horten
NOW WITH METRIC OFFSETS! Tired of struggling with that heavy plastic kayak? Are you looking for a lightweight boat but not willing to take out a second mortgage to buy it? What if we told you that you could build a boat weighting less than 35 lbs for £100 to £200? You can and this book will show you how. This style was very popular in the 1950's and 1960's and many boat plans appeared in magazines such as Popular Mechanics and Popular Science. Even though it is no longer fashionable in the magazines, the fuselage style of construction is still probably the most cost effective way to build a small boat. If you want to try lightweight boat building this is the way forward.
