Boatbuilding Manual is one of the most widely read texts on the subject, and it has been used for years as a standard reference at both boatbuilding and design schools. A builder and designer for more than 55 years, Robert Steward has rare abilities as a writer and draftsman. His phrasing is clear and easy, and he writes the absolute minimum necessary for a complete understanding of the subject. This fourth edition, like its predecessors, emphasizes traditional wooden construction but also surveys plywood, wood-epoxy, fiberglass, steel, aluminum, and other boatbuilding methods. The chapters on interpreting plans, lofting, and moldmaking are common to all methods. New to this edition are several chapters arising from the "Miscellaneous Details" chapter of earlier editions; an appendix on sharpening tools; expanded tables of metric equivalents; an expanded and annotated source guide for plans, fasteners, hardware, wood, and other staples of boatbuilding; and a list of additional reading. Praise for Boatbuilding Manual: ". . . the best building manual for wooden boats there is--clear, concise but inclusive, and written so the inexperienced boatbuilder can read it."--John Gardner, Mystic Seaport Museum "I first got acquainted with the Boatbuilding Manual in the early 1970s when Murray Peterson, the yacht designer, gave me a copy saying, 'Read this. It's the best book on small-boat building I've ever seen.' I had to agree and it's still true. Steward's book is in a class of its own. It's the book I always recommend for boatbuilding classes, and we've used it to fine advantage at the local high school."--Sonny Hodgdon, Hodgdon Yachts, Inc., East Boothbay, Maine This is a book at home in the workshop, not the library. Pulled from beneath a pile of shavings, it is the thing to help make a tough decision or to quiet an unwelcome adviser."--SAIL

For new boating enthusiasts--even if they've been at it awhile--there are scores of burning questions. If one boat has a round bottom and another's is veed, what difference does it make in the way they perform? What are the advantages of a cutter rig over a sloop? Why does one sailor swear by a full keel, while others won't have anything but a fin keel? Why does one powerboat have more flare in its topsides than another? And what is flare? Why do some hull shapes look "right"? How big an engine and propeller will it take to move that powerboat? What elements make a boat safe, or comfortable? Understanding Boat Design has been the place to look for quick, uncomplicated answers since 1971. Founder of the Yacht Design Institute, a highly respected designer for more than 30 years, and a frequent contributor to SAIL, Cruising World, and other magazines, Ted Brewer has again revised his classic primer. This new volume has been greatly expanded and contains information on many aspects of design that were not even thought of twenty years ago. Understanding Boat Design has eased tens of thousands of readers into the complex world of small-craft design. It is the ideal introduction for backyard boatbuilders, students of boat design, or someone looking to buy a first boat. "This tight little book should be required reading."--Soundings "A natural for those embarking on a first purchase, or the amateur builder."--Sailing "One of the cleanest and clearest expositions on the elements of yacht design ever published . . . by a naval architect who knows what he is talking about."--WoodenBoat

Boat noodling. Boat lovers suffer universally from this benign affliction. In its mildest form, boat noodling is nothing more than wondering why that sloop in the next slip is faster than yours. In a more significant manifestation it could mean serious daydreaming--drifting off for extended periods, sketching design ideas on the back of an envelope. Chances are, if you've picked up this book just to see what's in it, you're beyond help. Naval architect Dave Gerr offers the perfect antidote, a browser's reference to understanding how boats tick: all you've ever wanted to know about boats--power and sail, racer and cruiser; dinghy and motoryacht. In the clear, friendly, nontechnical style that has made his column for Offshore magazine so enduring and popular, Gerr explains everything from how thick a hull should be to why one sailboat tips less than another, from choosing an engine to designing a rig for your trawler yacht, from building a dinghy to simple rules of thumb for dozens of design quandaries. Gerr writes for the boat noodler in all of us--those seriously interested in learning and dreaming about all types of watercraft. There is no better way to become a better sailor, equipped to handle any contingency. And there's no better place to start than right here.

Tania Aebi, erste und jüngste amerikanische Weltumseglerin, erzählt erfrischend und geradezu hinreißend die Geschichte ihrer erstaunlichen und in jeder Hinsicht bewegenden 27 000-Meilen-Reise. Sie ist ein flippiger New Yorker Teenager, der mit seiner Clique die Nächte in den Discos herumhängt, als ihr Vater sie vor die Wahl stellt: ab aufs College oder Weltumseglung ? allein. Die 18-Jährige nimmt die Herausforderung an. Aus purer Abenteuerlust, aber auch, um dem Vater zu beweisen, dass sie sehr wohl Stehvermögen hat. Ihre Slup VARUNA ist knapp acht Meter lang. Vom Segeln weiß sie nicht viel mehr als das, was sie sich an Bord der väterlichen Yacht auf einer Atlantik-Überquerung abgeguckt hat. Doch was aus Abenteuerlust begann, wird zu einer Reise der Selbsterfahrung: Stürme, eine Kollision, eine Beinahe-Kenterung, Verletzungen ? sie will durchhalten, um jeden Preis, und sie schafft es. Obwohl sie mehrfach in Versuchung gerät, endgültig aufzugeben. Und sie verliebt sich zweimal. Oliver, ein junger Schweizer, ebenfalls einhand unterwegs, ist es schließlich, der Tania, als sie nach New York zurückkehrt, dort bereits erwartet. Sie hat nicht nur ihn, sondern im doppelten Sinne ?die Welt im Sturm erobert?.

Ein Klassiker über ein zeitlos spannendes Abenteurerschicksal Im Juli 1969 wird mitten im Atlantik eine Jacht entdeckt – die Segel sind gesetzt, aber der Trimaran ist leer. Nur die Log- und Tagebücher befinden sich noch an Bord und offenbaren ein dunkles Geheimnis. Ihr Verfasser Donald Crowhurst war acht Monate zuvor aufgebrochen, um im Wettstreit mit namhaften Seglern wie Robin Knox-Johnston und Bernard Moitessier als schnellster Solosegler nonstop die Welt zu umrunden. Was damals kaum jemand wusste: Crowhurst verfügte weder über Hochseeerfahrung noch über ein seetaugliches Boot. Doch warum war der Unternehmer und Familienvater dennoch bei dem Rennen, das die Sunday Times mit einem Preisgeld von 5000 Pfund ausgelost hatte, angetreten? Und was ist an Bord geschehen, dass er für immer verschollen blieb? Einfühlsam arbeiten die Autoren anhand der letzten Aufzeichnungen die Vorgeschichte und sonderbaren Abläufe auf See auf. Sie berichten von menschlichem Streben und Versagen. Erzählen eine Geschichte über Heldentum, in der kein Held vorkommt. Und zeichnen das Porträt eines bemerkenswerten Mannes, der am Ende keinen Ausweg mehr sah. »Crowhursts Geschichte ist dramatischer als alle anderen, geheimnisvoller und dunkler als ›All is lost‹.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Magazin »Eine der außergewöhnlichsten Seefahrtgeschichten, die je veröffnetlicht wurde.« The Washington Post »Ein Meisterstück.« The New Yorker »Eines der packendsten Lesestücke über das Segeln überhaupt.« FAZ
