Small Boat Conversion

by John Lewis

Condition: Very Good/Fair

36 Soho Square London W I: Rupert Hart-Davis, 1951. From the inside Jacket "Nowadays the impecunious yachtsman can rarely afford to buy a boat, but he can still buy a lifeboat, a whaler, or one of the many other ex-service boats that are on the market, and convert it into the kind of boat he wants. John Lewis here describes several ways of converting lifeboats and other small craft. He tells step by step how his own ketch was made from a 26-ft. lifeboat, giving every detail of the work. He is himself an amateur, so he sees the job from the novice's point of view and does not take any knowledge of boat-building for granted. The book contains 16 pages of blue-print plans, 101 illustrations in the text and 33 black and white photographs.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Fair. Illus. by R. J. Rice from Designs by the Author. 9" - 6" Tall.
