      Anybody have any other suggestions for boatbuilding books that would be
      helpful for builders of Atkin boats?

      Glen-L's BOATBUILDING WITH PLYWOOD, at least in the earlier editions I've
      seen in used book stores, seems like a good one for builder's of the Atkins'
      plywood boats:


      Their book on engine installation mainly covers large auto engine
      conversions. Anybody know of a good book that covers engine installation?

      One boat just leads to another.
