Review

If this book tabulated its chapters (which it doesn't), the list might read as follows: The Smack Boat, a common type in Bahamian waters; The Dinghy, open or decked-9' to 18' in length; The Gaff-rigged and Bare-Head Boats, variations on a theme; The Sponge Schooner, lofty rigs and great spreads of sail; Boatbuilding, the traditional ways; and The Haitian Sloops, perhaps descended from Brenton fishing boats. Each section includes notes on tools, gear, and techniques - as well as social insight.
