The downeast coast of Maine is a special place. It is studded with picture postcard harbors and towns reminiscent of Norman Rockwell paintings. Swinging on their moorings, in the quiet harbors are the working boats of Maine's indigenous fishery, the lobster boats. The boat in this new book by Steve Rogers was originally built in Jonesport, Beals Island area, north and east of Acadia National Park. It is said that this is the first place where lobster men strapped gasoline engines over their keels to escape the vagaries of the wind._x000D_Taking the lines of boats built before 1940 by Alvin Beal, Steve takes the modeller step-by-step through the process of building an authentic scale model lobster boat. In over 250 color photographs he begins with the sculpting of the builder's model, upon which are laid the ribs and hull of the boats. The process continues through the building of accessories and the painting of the boat._x000D_This is the third and most ambitious of Steve's books, which have received critical and popular acclaim. This is sure to do the same. AUTHOR:
