Two years after his untimely death we offer a portrait of one of the most admired and loved yacht designers of the late twentieth century. Joel White's creations of timeless beauty, large and small, grace harbours all over the world, and many hundreds of amateur boatbuilders have turned dreams into reality with the guidance of his plans for boats like the Nutshell pram and the Shellback dinghy.

MR GRATEHEAD'S LIFE-BOAT
In the late 1700s a dramatic shipwreck in the Tyne estuary, Northeast England, led to the development of the first, purpose-built, shore-to-ship life-boat. Its original design and eventual production, however, were both surrounded by controversy and contradictory claims of authorship. Adrian Osler
IN SEARCH OF THE SANDEQ
In south Sulawesi, Indonesia, there are a number of primitive yet highly efficient working sailing craft that have developed in relative isolation, have survived the tests of time and encroaching western technologies, and are still used to the almost complete exclusion of more modern alternatives. Their days are perhaps numbered and yet their large sails and light construction offer images of rare beauty combined with impressive speeds and skilful working practices. Roger Michael Johnson
ERIK RONNBERG AND HIS SHIP MODELS
Erik Ronnberg's models of nineteenth-and early-twentieth-century New England vessels are renowned for both their accuracy and their realism. His reputation has been gained through his uncompromising scholarship that looks beyond the artefacts of the past and seeks to understand the ways of protagonists. Tom Cunliffe
BENJAMIN MENDLOWITZ, MARINE PHOTOGRAPHER
In the closing decades on this century, Benjamin Mendlowitz, based in Maine, USA, has gained a respected position among the world?s great photographers of classic craft. Like the subjects he chooses, his photographs are masterpieces of simple beauty; their very simplicity, however, belies the patient lengths to which the photographer will go to achieve the right image.
