"[Harold's second instalment in the Instant Boats series is called Build the New Instant Boats, and includes] ... eleven new Instant Boats to choose from, including three built with a new 'Tack and Tape' method that eliminates most of the beveling and results in a very shapely and spritely craft. Flip through the pages and compare the odd, sometimes startling shapes of the patterns with the pleasing sheers and functional good looks of the completed boats. You will begin to appreciate the genius of Bolger.
In the opening chapters, Dynamite tells you with common sense and uncommon good humor everything you need know to build one of his boats. You can then start right in cutting readily available plywood sheets to pre-computed patterns. (You can build directly from the book, but the purchase of larger-scale plans at a modest cost from Dynamite will make the task of scaling off the patterns easier.) Before you know it, you will be fastening them together — all your basic assembly virtually behind you, and years on the water just ahead."
