Default Boat building repair books/magazines?

Anybody have any recommendations on books, magazines for boat building/restoring? Im looking to dig into the topics more and wondering whats out there. Ive been scouring the bateau forum, theyve got some good stuff on there too. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

West system has or had some good magazine type publications. It has been several years since I have looked for them. If they are still available, I highly recommend them.

THT member CommuterBoats (Gerald) would be able to suggest a library's worth of material.

How deep do you want to get into this. There is lots of material available, from general info on boat design and building to very technical books on various aspects of design and building
This Old Boat, by Don Casey.
Do a search on AMAZON. for Dave Gerr: The Nature of Boats. And once you read that, he has 5 or six other books that you may find informative.
Professional Boatbuilder and their partner publication Woodenboat

Look here on boatdesign.net https://www.boatdesign.net/Directory...cal_Resources/ for Books-Boatbuilding

These are all great suggestions, I bought this old boat a while back and saw that it was particularly written more towards a sailing crowd but still had a lot of good information in it. Ill have to reread it again. Id like a lot of information about taking an older hull, stripping it and how to fit a proper stringer grid, hatches, the whole shebang.
