Read "Build the New Instant Boats"
thoroughly before you start. You'll need information you'll find
right through the book, as the instructions for the schooner herself
are a bit sparse (it's the last in the book and all the basics
of construction have been given in earlier pages.
A second Payson book, "Build
the Instant Catboat" is highly useful and strongly recommended,
as it gives a lot of detail on mast and spar making, and also
the eventual rigging. You don't absolutely need it, but it will
help you make stunning spars rather than just ordinary ones.
