Boat Building

Boat Building has been going on for centuries, starting with hollowed out logs and reeds banded together in rafts. Wood was the next popular building material, followed later with iron, steel, and aluminum. Today, most boats are made of fiberglass, which employs layers of fiberglass cloth bound together by a hardened resin compound. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, and each requires specific knowledge about material, engineering, and fabrication.
