Design Commentaries by the Experts

With this book in hand, you will hold the collective wisdom of the ages. Or at least the wisdom of the experts. A mountain of information has been culled from the best boat design reviews from WoodenBoat magazine. You'll spend hours pouring over a variety of boats, from rowing craft to powerboats, daysailers to cruising boats.

The reviews are comprehensive and thorough. No once-over-lightly here. There is an analysis of the lines, construction plan, accommodation plan, plus recommendations for improvements. The scope of work includes designs by John Alden, Joel White, Henry Scheel, Howard Chapelle, S.S. Crocker, and many others. This is a wonderful book for boat dreamers. Study these plans, read these commentaries, go sailing in your mind.
