From the Back Cover:

Tired of $250 clipper ship kits that aren't big enough to house a traveling flea circus, and which you'll never finish anyway? Don't want another modeling book by a hobbyist who has never built a real boat or seen salt water? In Boat Modeling With Dynamite Payson, the well-known author/boatbuilder takes his instant approach to building full-size boats down a peg, to tabletop replicas of small rowing and sailing craft suitable for the mantle, mudpuddles, or just dreaming.

To build the beginning modeler's confidence, Dynamite starts with a very simple toy lobsterboat anyone can build in an hour, then walks the reader through a progressively more complex family of models--dories, skiffs, catboats, peapods--that each introduce a new facet of the craft. Dynamite's friendly, no-nonsense instructions and step-by-step photographs, coupled with marine artist Doug Alvord's handsome drawings, guide the reader through each boat's construction, from stem to stern.

The only modeling book written by a real Maine boatbuilder, Boat Modeling With Dynamite Payson will feed the fantasies and hone the skills of armchair sailors of all ages and degrees of competence, whether as a warm-up to a full-size boatbuilding project, or as an end in itself.

Dear Dynamite:

"Your matter-of-fact style takes boatbuilding from a world of offset tables and woodworking mystique into everyone's backyard shop."--Mark Klopfenstein, Fullerton, California

"As a technical writer, I appreciate a book that is well organized, simple, and straightforward in its approach, and uses a minimum of extraneous words . . . Thanks for writing something that a novice can understand without either becoming intimidated or being made to feel stupid."--Art Norrington, Clute, Texas

"I have the greatest admiration for your work, for your unusual teaching skills and ability to inspire even the most hardcore procrastinators into action."--Sean Gagnier, Mendocino, California

"Not only do you provide excellent information--well laid out and very readable--but you have the knack of allowing the reader to get to know you as a person--an excellent combination of talents."--Robert W. Norris, Columbia, Maryland

"I feel like an old friend already! I have just started to read your book for the third time in a week. I am impressed by the simplicity of it all; the method of construction, the design, the clear and humorous instruction."--Peter Fitzpatrick, Kelowna, British Columbia

"Carpenters and boatbuilders might be a dollar a dozen, but people like you are a blessing to mankind. You are to boatbuilding what Professor Suzuki was for music and violin playing; opening fields of joy which were before considered the exclusive province of the happy few."--Glorieux, Antwerpen, Belgium

From the Inside Flap:

Build seven models based on real boats, with the watchful guidance of Harold "Dynamite" Payson. He as man driven by the pleasure of making things, and has caught "model-itis," and is more than happy to spread his affliction to you.
