omarcs Posted June 5, 2014 Share #1 Posted June 5, 2014 Wooden Ships by Peter H. Spectre and David Larkin This book covers wooden ships from simple very early boats through contemporary wooden power craft. The best part is a section on building a full size replica of SUSAN CONSTANT, a ship from around 1607. The thrust of the section is the build with many great photos. But, additionally, there are photos of a model ship. The whole book aided my understanding of why wood ships are built as they are. It compared and contrasted merchant ships to warships, as well as different classes of warships. This is a good read for an over view of wooden ships The photographs answered a few questions I had about the build I am doing, even though my ship was not specifically mentioned.
