Author and traditional boatbuilder Barry Thomas tells the story of building
one of seafaring's most compelling vessels - the Cape Cod Catboat. The 19th
century design is from the Crosby Boatshops on Cape Cod, and the vessel
built is the BRECK MARSHALL which sails the waterfront at Mystic Seaport
today, carrying visitors. Through informative text, photographs and fold-out
drawings Thomas describes the step-by-step construction of this classic boat
using techniques and tools familiar to boatbuilders in 1870. Paperback,
60pages, 54 photographs, seven fold-out drawings.
