A giant wooden boat being built by hand in Karachi, Pakistan

This section covers the process, the people, the rules, the tools, the materials, and the boat equipment that is required to build boats and ships. For you do-it-yourself and want-a-be boat builders, be sure to see the last subsection Do-It-Yourself Boat Building in this section and the last subsection Do-It-Yourself Refitting and Repair in the Boat Refitting & Repair section where the step by step boat building and refitting processes are covered in detail. These sections have also proven to be very valuable to professional boat builders and repair facilities as well. Just for fun, you may also want to checkout The Rules of Boat Design.
