DIY Wood Boat Link Library, a list of online links which I believe may be of interest to other Wooden Boat enthusiasts, they are not intended as recomendations.
They are, however all independent sites and I have no control over their content.
These are just a few of the Associations, world wide, that are doing sterling work to promote the building, restoring and use of wooden boats.
are just a few of the Boat Building Schools that I know of that teach
Traditional Boat Building skills.

This is a list of Blogs which I have found to be well written and interesting, I hope you do too.
They are not listed in any particular order.
