|Based on a series of articles in WoodenBoat Magazine, this is the classic text on building a traditional carvel-planked sailing yacht.
The author spent his life building wooden boats, and was one of those rare craftsmen who could write with lucidity, intelligence and humour about their work.
Every aspect of the process is described from laying down the lines to finishing the spars and rigging.
The text is accompanied by extremely clear drawings by Sam Manning, a find draughtsman and boat builder himself.
246 pages, 200 B&W illustrations, Hardback.
