Hi,

Your plans should have come with a basic set of instructions. These are pretty brief, so most builders get a copy of "Boatbuilding with Plywood" by Glen L Witt, or "The New Cold-Molded Boadbuilding". Both of these are available on the Glen L website, Amazon, or other book sellers. These should get you started reading the plans, wood selection, tools, building techniques, etc... These books will not be for your specific boat, but all the Glen L designs use similar techniques and methods.

Ahmed,
This is the first time I have ever built a boat and I would seriously recommend you buy a copy of "Boatbuilding with plywood". It helped so much with what to do next and how to do it. And if you are still stuck then there are many helpful people on this forum.
