A brand new book of designs and plans by well-known naval architect and boat builder Paul Gartside. The book contains detailed plansets for 20 small boat designs aimed at the amateur or professional boatbuilder. Each planset gives the lines and offsets, construction details, accommodation plan and sail plan. Each article is accompanied by the designer's own commentary highlighting the history, the design concept, and any particular points of construction requiring specialised knowledge. The book is laid out landscape fashion and measures 30 x 23 cm (12" x 9"). Illustrated with B&W and colour photos, with fully detailed plansets. A must for any small boat enthusiast. Full-size drawings are also available from the designer and as electronic downloads.
