Straight to the point, easy to understand; this book will guide you through the calculations and and techniques required to come up with a satisfactory design. For anyone interested in boats and particularly for those who are keen to develop their own designs, I would thoroughly recommend this book.

It is good book. Describes most of "how it works" in boats design subject. Obviously it's not a full handbook but it's most certainly good start.
