Product Description

About the Author

Howard I. Chapelle (1901-1975) was an American naval architect, and curator of maritime history at the Smithsonian Institution. In addition, he authored many books and articles books on maritime history and marine architecture, including Yacht Designing and Planning, Boatbuilding: A Complete Handbook of Wooden Boat Construction, The History of American Sailing Ships,The History of the American Sailing Navy: The Ships and Their Development, American Small Sailing Craft, and many more. Jon Wilson grew up under the heady influence of the ocean's forces and fragrances on the Rhode Island and Connecticut shores. Taking more naturally to New England's saltwater traditions than its academic ones, he became a carpenter and builder of wooden boats before launching WoodenBoat magazine from a cabin in Maine in 1974. In the wake of that magazine's international success and influence, Wilson sensed an opportunity to create a new magazine that could further thinking and dialog on the deeply human and personal aspects of challenging individual and social issues. He began working on ideas for Hope magazine in 1994, and launched the magazine in early 1996. He is Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Hope.

Chapelle's advice and methods as described in this book can benefit yacht designers of every level. Beginners who are just getting started would be advised to read Chapelle first, before getting into bad habits that may be hard to break later on. Even professionals who have been designing boats for years may find that the "older" methods as described by Chapelle may have advantages over some of the newer, quicker (but not necessarily better) methods being taught recently. His "do it right the first time" ideas may take longer in the beginning, but in the end they make for a better all around design and boat.
