Boatbuilding pdf articles?

Post by jbo_c »

Anybody got good links to pdfs on boatbuilding either technicques or real life experiences?

I'm traveling 10hrs by car and need something to read while my wife's driving and I've already read the books I have at least twice. I figure I can put a few pdfs on my laptop and do it that way.

No boatbuilding to speak of locally, so just picking up a new book won't work. Oh yeah, and I've alread read everything on this site.

Thanks.

Jbo

I've got PDFs of some System 3 guides that would kill a couple of hours. The S3 epoxy book, the S3 painting book and a Quick Fair tutorial.

I'd be glad to email them to you. Don't see a link to your email though.

Cracker Larry,
I would be interested in those files. If you didn't mind could you email them to me?

Larry B, I sent you an email. This forum reply form won't let me attach files.

jbo - if you have access to the Internet while on the road, Practical Sailor.com has a ton of stuff in PDF. http://www.practical-sailor.com/tools/features.html

Enjoy!

Done. You should remove your email address asap, or the spammers will get it.
