“Building Sweet Dream” is a complete how-to manual covering all phases of building and finishing six versions of a 12-, 13- or 14-foot 28-lb. arc-bottom canoe. It includes dimensioned hull plans, a detailed building sequence heavily illustrated with step-by-step photographs, tips and techniques for painting and varnishing and hard-to-find background and reference material. Anyone with a few basic hand and electric tools and a small workshop or one-car garage can build Sweet Dream. This is a boatbuilding project for any level of boatbuilding or canoeing experience. Sweet Dream is shapely, strong and durable.
