This revised edition of a classic work covers the history, design, construction, and use of traditional wooden inshore fishing boats in the small town of Winterton, on the shore of Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. Boatbuilding lore, especially the dynamics of boat design and construction, are seen from the perspective of the boat builders themselves, and are discussed within the context of the community's social, economic, and natural environments. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, archival images, drawings, and line plans, this book is a practical guide for boatbuilding enthusiasts and a valuable resource for scholars.
