Free E-Book Yacht Design

This book was published in 1904 (so is public domain,) and is a great source of design info. It gets into normal hull design but also sail design. It has close to enough info to build this gaff rigged cutter in the back - well, not enough details to match a modern design, but plenty to form the traditional shape and sail plan using traditional methods. That's enough for many builders back them to build excellent, and circumnavigating hulls in the days of wooden ships and iron men.

Download it if you have some desire to design your own boat. It's traditional and simple enough to do these yourself, but you do have to know some math to follow these methods - and they are manual.

Boatbuilding Pictures

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.

I believe in offering you all the information you need to learn more about how to build a boat. That's why I offer free videos, free ebooks, and free reports. There's even some free plans available to isiders and some seminars I've delivered. To join, just click below:
