I have a Peterborough Row Boat in the shop at the moment for a re-varnish. As I'm cleaning it up I'm wondering how these were built. Anyone know of or have any info as to the methods used in the construction of this type of craft and the early all wood strip planked canoes, rowboats etc.? I have a little info from a buddy of mine, namely that they were production built on a big solid form with grooves in the form for each rib and each strip was rabbeted into the next and a few other tidbits. But I'd like to find out more. Is there any literature out there that I can be pointed towards? I don't really plan on building one but find the methods used in the past (and present) very interesting. Thanks in advance.
