Wonder where Tony got these pictures? I always thought that most of the CC pictures were lost. Think I'll have to get this one and the one he wrote about the Dodge Bros. boats. Pete

MACK has had the DODGE book in stock for quite some time.

Ordered from Amazon on Tuesday evening, book was on my doorstep Thursday!

Nice, hard cover, with lots of the usual shots of boats on the water, old color ads, and a fair scattering of construction photos... would liked to have seen more of those, revealing the inner structure... but most seem to be planked hulls being sanded.

Pat,does the book show any of the starting pictures of how they set the frames up and complete the initial framing? Pete

Pat, does it show any of the larger boats, like the early 50's, 50ft Catalina??

Tony's books


I have all of his books, they are all great to read, I think my favorite one of his to read was the one on the Dodge boats. He also has them on Gar Wood and Hacker Craft.
