4.0 out of 5 stars A great description of naval cutters
A brilliant book giving almost all you need to know about the construction of this naval cutter (and a good indication of how other cutters of this period must have been made). If I could have worked out how to stow the ship's boat it would have had 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy of Naval Cutter Alert
Considering the credentials of the author as curator of HMS Victory I was very disappointed with this book. I have used many in this series without serious problem but having brought this for the rigging details was soon met with frustration. The same rigging item was depicted as a single block on one page to find when rigging it was a treble, some items had different...

This review is from: Naval Cutter Alert 1777 (Anatomy of the Ship) (Hardcover)
Considering the credentials of the author as curator of HMS Victory I was very disappointed with this book. I have used many in this series without serious problem but having brought this for the rigging details was soon met with frustration. The same rigging item was depicted as a single block on one page to find when rigging it was a treble, some items had different descriptions on different drawings, some just did not tell you what type of block it was. There is no sizes, rope circumferences or belaying diagram and, infact, any detail that is usually hard to determine is simply left out. To find information a lot of jumping around the book is required and cross referencing. Don't buy this book thinking it is all you need because you will soon be searching through other publications for further details.
