Intended for people who are not boat designers, this book describes how to bring a dream boat into being. Written by an experienced naval architect, it prepares intelligent amateurs create conceptual vessel designs ready for a naval architect's finishing touches. Included are the basic rationales and data needed to undertake a designing project, presented in a style that successfully bridges the gap between technical approach of naval architecture and the simplification of consumer magazine articles. This volume covers a variety of watercraft, so it can be equally useful if you're envisioning a cruising yacht or a sixty-foot fishing boat.
