by DMWright on Feb 14, 2008

If you have ever dreamed of building a wooden yacht this is where to begin. Howard I. Chaplele's style is from an earlier century but the information is solid and copious. He speaks the language of the sea from a time when the great sailing vessels roamed the oceans of the world, so be prepared to learn more than a few new words.

This is detailed reading but hey, yacht design is all about the details. Enjoy!
