      Martha Green is of pretty simple construction. She's built in the
      old-fashioned Chesapeake cross-planked style. Get your hands on Howard
      Chapelle's book Boatbuilding (still in print) for a good introduction to
      building boats the old-fashioned way. If you can find a copy, Harry
      Sucher's Simplified Boatbuilding: the V-Bottom Boat has lots of info on
      building skipjacks. But building a Martha Green is a big project, so you'd
      be wise to start with something small to learn if you like building boats.

      I have never seen a situation so dismal that a policeman
      couldn't make it worse. <Brendan Behan>
