  •                          Praise for Good Sailboat Designs:

    It’s the best explanation [of hull lines] that I’ve ever read. O’Brien’s writing reflects a deep understanding of boats and the joy they give to him.

    – Dennis Caprio, former editor of Small Boat Journal and senior editor at Yachting


    Mike O'Brien makes boats, each and every one he writes about, indelible for me. You can’t find drawings like these, and become exposed to Mike’s encyclo-practic grasp of boats, anywhere better than in his very own publication.

    – Jim Brown, multihull designer and author
