Steve Rogers loves working boats, and the skipjacks is one of the best. Following the acclaim of his previous three books on model boat building, Steve offers a guide for building a skipjack. This is, perhaps, the most ambitious of the projects presented to date, and he leads the craftsperson step-by-step through the process. The result is a beautiful boat in full sail. The model is in 1/2″ scale, based on a skipjack that is 45 feet on deck with a 15 foot beam. Drawings, patterns, jigs, and accessories are all detailed for the aid and instruction of the reader. Everything is illustrated in clear color photographs with concise captions which describe the action.
