    Default Book suggestion?

    Thinking about building a Skin on Frame canoe if I ever get the cedar strip canoe I'm working on done. I'm looking for reference material. The book, "Building Skin on Frame Boats" by Robert Morris seems to be highly recommended. It is out of print, and quite pricey. Are there books of equal quality or is this book worth the 70-80.00 it's currently fetching. Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

    For traditional building try Building Skin-on-Frame Double Paddle Canoes by Hillary Russell.

    For non traditional building try Fuselage Frame Boats by Jeff Horton.

    You might be able to get the Robert Morris through inter library loan.

    Good Luck,
