What is a good book detailing tradional plank on frame construction for a largish hardchine boat? I've been thinking alot about Atkin's 'America Junior'. (There are pictures of one on Yacht Trader)

I have Bud McIntosh's excellent book but he doesn't go into hard chine details.
Thanks.

"Boatbuilding" by Chapelle is probably your best bet but Robert Steward's "Boatbuilding Manual" also has some information.
Good luck.

Some overlap of material between the books. Long out of print. Borrow via inter-library loan and photocopy.

Well worth it.

In addition to books by Chappelle and Monk, if you can find reprints of the Rudder articles on the building of the "Sea Bird Yawl" you will find a good deal of information on dealing with hard chine construction.
