"Sensible Cruising Designs" by L. Francis Herreshoff.
Recommended by James G. (Jim) Merritt SAMS AMS - SMS

To those of you who do not have a copy of Herreshoff's book I would suggest you purchase same and read it cover to cover. There are ideas and truths expressed that we in the marine community need to keep in our present day thinking. Read especially the comments offered in the section on building "Rozinante", a classic design originally published in "Rudder" magazine. I still have the original article pages from my copy of the magazine as I helped another boating nut build one many years ago.
