Historic Sail: Britain's Surviving Working Craft

Historic Sail: Britain's Surviving Working Craft Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Historic Sail documents the former sailing working boats that survive around the British Isles, concentrating on craft of 40ft and over. Each type is introduced and its evolution tracked along with the main characteristics of the traditional design, before every surviving craft is described in turn, revealing history, details of restoration or preservation, the current location and use of the craft, and basic particulars such as dimensions and tonnage. This vivid book is profusely illustrated with color photographs, including many taken by the author, and others sourced through National Historic Ships and the vessel owners, as well as archive images. Historic Sail is being produced in partnership with National Historic Ships, the leading UK body dedicated to supporting the heritage of historic craft.
