The man has thought long and hard about boats

by laker on Apr 1, 2008

Dave Gerr has packed this book with enough information about boats that you could go out and design your own, yet it's consistently readable and entertaining. Dave's math never gets wilder than a few square roots, and even then he takes us gently by the hand. This guy's design career has ranged from mega-yachts to 10-foot canoes, and he gives us the benefit of 30 years of experience. Whether you want to design your own boat, or decide what kind of boat would best suit you, or just have a good boat nerd read, this book belongs on your shelf.
