We revived this book in the mid-80s, but it was again out of print for many years. It's such an extraordinary book, chock-full of lines drawings, that we had to bring it back into print.
Small Yachts is such a fascinating look at a wonderful array of craft from the past that we had to bring it back to life. It's packed with sharpies, canoe yawls, cutters, a variety of catboats, plussneakboxes, bugeyes, and more.This is a careful reprint of the original 1891 book (less some technicals). Re-discover this jewel of a text.

And, if you are into building half-hull models from waterlines and buttock lines, this book is modeler's heaven. For a handy article on just how to do that, see WoodenBoat #182, where Eric Dow builds the lovely Maid of Endor from the lines drawings. If you don't have that issue, the print version is sold out, but you can download the PDF version of the issue.
