Boat Design Quarterly

Boat Design Quarterly


Boat Design Quarterly is Edited and Published by Mike O'Brien, Designer, Boatbuilder, and long time Senior Editor of WoodenBoat Magazine.
Any one familiar with the regular Design Analysis column in WoodenBoat will recognise the concept of a more detailed analysis of designs, with lines plan, layout, construction, sail plan, and internal accommodation drawings. Each issue features half a dozen designs subjected to the Editor's scrutiny and interpretation. An enjoyable and relaxed way to learn about small craft design.
Forty issues of Boat Design Quarterly are now available and an estimated 200 designs have now been subject to Mike O'Brien's study making the publication an invaluable resource for students of small craft design.
