    Intended for people who are not boat designers, this book describes how to bring a boat of your dreams into being. Written by an experienced naval architect, it prepares intelligent amateurs to create conceptual vessel designs ready for a naval architect's finishing touches. Included are all the basic rationales and data needed to undertake a designing project, presented in a style that successfully bridges the gap between the technical approach of naval architecture books and the over simplification of consumer magazine articles.

    The book provides all the essential information, including a discussion of vessel stability and trim. Mathematical applications are demystified as much as possible.

    Although most naval architecture books deal with only one type of vessel, this volume covers a wide variety of watercraft. It can be equally useful if your envisioning a modest cruising yacht or a sixty-foot fishing boat.
