How to Design a Boat


How to Design a Boat is a very practical guide that will enable even first-time designers to produce a worthwhile boat design. John Teale, a naval architect whose designs range from fast powerboats & motor cruisers to passenger ferries, fishing boats & cruising yachts, takes you step-by-step through the stages of designing both power & sailing boats, while also explaining the reasoning behind the process. Line diagrams & working drawings are used throughout to explain lines plans from a wide range of vessels. The standard calculations employed in all boat design work (which require only very basic math skills) are set out & typical examples are worked through. In addition, speed/power tables are given for motorboats as well as a method for checking 'balance' under sail. The second edition simplifies several calculations & introduces new designs.
