The Architect's Apprentice: The Story of the Design and Construction of a Wooden Sailboat
After his classic cutter became unfit for ocean sailing, the author decided to follow his dream and have a new custom-designed sailboat built out of wood. The experiences that follow make a story as interesting as any sailing yarn. With clarity, warmth, and humor he shows the beauty of a naval architect's drawings, and then the glue and sawdust as those plans generate the structure of a boat.
