If you're like me, Woodenboat magazine is a favorite read. Their web site has lots of articles and great information but it also has full downloads for some of their back issues. The photography is top-notch and the boats are great. Some say that the magazine caters to east coast builders but it could be that there are just more of them back there.
Web site for the magazine, Small Craft Advisor has a great message board, photo gallery and web articles. You can also download back issues for $5.95.
I came across this site while reading about Charlie Whipple's wooden boat Resolution. Whipple built a Sundowner, a 21' plywood composit boat which tragiclly was lost on the rocks on her first voyage. You can read about what happened and see video on the Duckworks site here.
I found a great web site tonight with lots of good stories and a focus on building and design. Dory-Man.blogspot.com. It's always nice when good stories have great photos to match and Dory-Man has both.
I suggest a good long visit.
