Greek Vernacular Boatbuilding

Until the early 20th century, the building of traditional wooden vessels was a major cottage industry in Greece. Greek Vernacular Boatbuilding by Kostas A. Damianidis is the product of research over many years, combining historical records and invaluable testimonials from the last surviving traditional wooden boat shipwrights in Greece. The work covers construction methods, traditional hull types, tools, types of wood and their sources, construction planning, and the building of traditional wooden vessels in Greece.
