Lapstrake plank replacement resources

Post by truenorth01 » Fri Apr 10, 2015 10:19 am

I have recently checked out the Dannenburg book from a public library. In my review I found it to particularly scant on the subject of Lapstrake. To expand my knowledge on the subject I am looking for additional written material. I see some one on Amazon from Peter Spectre. Has anyone seen this book? It is not expensive, only about $23.00. If so I would welcome your comments related to its content.

If you are aware of other GOOD in depth manuals please let me know.

The Dannenburg books are a wonderful resource for many other applications that cross over to our Skiffs but just dont fit the bill for what I am looking for.

Thanks,
Mark S.

Did you get books 1 and 2? Book 2 has very good info on lapstrake construction.

I found "How to Restore Your Wooden Runabout" Are you saying that "The Complete Wooden Boat Restoration Guide" will have dedicated chapter (s) on Lapstrake?
