Subtitled The Australian 18-Footer -- Origin, Evolution and Construction
As the lengthy sub-title tells you, this particular design is well covered with lots of historical information as well as details on construction. Some might view these as cousins of the "sandbaggers", the heavily canvassed racing boats in the US.
Chapters include lofting, molds, planking, spars, rigging, and sailing. And there is a glossary as well as appendices on restorations, builders, and recording designs.
