This vintage book is a complete guide to designing and building yachts, with information on steam propulsion, using and making sails, materials, tools, rigging, and much more. Written in simple language and profusely illustrated, this volume will be of considerable utility to those with an interest in yacht construction, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Many old works like this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
