Item Description

Sometimes the best boats aren?t the one you find on the showroom floor or in the boating magazines. They?re the ones that you build with your own two hands and are made with metal, blood, sweat and more than a few tears.

Boatbuilding with Aluminum: A Complete Guide for the Amateur and Small Shop is everything you need to create a boat from scratch using aluminum. Aluminum is the perfect metal for boat building because it?s light, inexpensive and malleable enough to fit most situations. You don?t need to spend an arm and a leg to get the boat you?ve always wanted.

Maybe you?re a shop owner and looking to expand your services? Aluminum boat building is a growing market as more and more people learn about the joy of cruising the open water. This book contains everything you need to create a profitable business by building aluminum boats. Don?t let this opportunity pass you by; it has step-by-step instructions on the entire process.

Boatbuilding with Aluminum teaches the amateur and the professional how to create a lighter and tougher boat than you can buy in the showroom. It covers every detail from welding the pieces together to fitting the aluminum and painting it once completed. The second edition even contains a special section on computer-aided lofting and cutting, so you can get the perfect fit every time.

Few people realize their dreams to own a boat, but this book lets you build one from the ground up. This isn?t just a boat purchase, it?s an adventure that you?ll never forget.
