Pete Culler was known for his handsome, honest boats with little varnish/brightwork. What might surprise you is how prolific he was, and how much personality was packed into his designs.
Out of print for years, we've brought his design "catalog" back so once again every design he offered is available for your viewing pleasure. It's jam-packed with lines drawings and photos as well as background stories of the designs and plenty of no-nonsense (some might say "crusty") advice, making it a fascinating study and a good read to boot. Author John Burke grew up next door to "Capt. Pete", and is probably better versed in all things Culler than just about anyone. You'll gain a true insight to the man from Burke's unique perspective.
On the cover: the 10-1/2 foot wherry yawlboat AF Chapman, built for the wooden ketch Stormsvalla, she was originally designed for the schooner Fiddler's Green.
