Greg Rössel's directions for making half-hull models are clear and complete. Yet this how-to book is also an entertaining read.... Everyone can learn something from this good book.
---Mike O'Brien, author of Good Sailboat Designs and WoodenBoat magazine designs editor

I know of no better way of achieving fluency and familiarity with hull forms ... than by working back and forth between two dimensions and three using scale models. In this valuable book Greg Rössel takes us through the process in both directions.
--Paul Gartside, designer and author of Plans & Dreams Volume 1 and Volume 2
