Walter Simmons wrote his first book, Lapstrake Boatbuilding in 1978. It has been revised and updated several times, and the latest version has expanded to include all of Volume 2 and a whole lot more. In addition, we have his 20 other titles, including his Boatbuilding in Pictures Series in print and on CD. All of it is as valuable today as it was when it was written. If there's boatbuilding in your blood, you really need to check them out over on our new site.
