Title:Small Yacht Construction and Rigging
An early 20th century treatise on yacht design and construction, by an influential British yacht designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Linton Hope’s designs encompassed a wide range of craft from canoes to ocean-going yachts, and even early flying boats.
From the Introduction:-
‘So many amateurs nowadays understand the use of carpenters tools, and have some knowledge of yacht designing, thanks to the late Dixon Kemp’s admirable books, that I feel sure a few hints on practical boat and small yacht building will interest yachtsmen generally, and, I hope,be of some assistance to those who wish to try their hands at building their own boats. Boat-building is one of the most fascinating hobbies a man can take up, although it is scarcely likely that any amateur would care about spending several years acquiring the requisite skill to enable him to turn out the very highest class of rater work. If, however, he has some natural talent, patience and common sense, there is no reason why, with a little practice, he should not be able to build a vessel which will be a credit to him, and probably better than many of the so-called ‘cheap boats’ which are turned out by some small firms.’
‘The designs shown are taken, not so much as being ideal boats in any way, but chiefly as representing popular types of sailing boats and small yachts now in general use, and suitable for an amateur to build. They will also be sufficiently typical to illustrate the methods used for most carvel-built boats up to ten tons.
The first three chapters will apply to all sorts of carvel building, but in the subsequent chapters I shall endeavour to explain the construction of a boat of each type side by side.’
