The present book is a very famous classical publication (first released in 1883), dedicated to the construction, handling and rigging of various model yachts, steamers and ships with some remarks on racing and cruising yachts as well as the management of open boats, together with the lines for different models and a cutter yacht.

It is definitely a sort of must-have book for everyone interesting with the fleet history. Official publication. Digitized by Google. Believe that the title of the publication is pretty self-explanatory. Even though the book is fairly aged, its content is still expected to be of great interest for a real lovers of the sea-going ships and boats.

The author of the book covers such the important aspects as the design including both theory and practice, drawing the ships lines, construction and finishing, rigging a model cutter, rigging and masting in general, sailing, different types of models, practical hints on designing, racing yachts and their design, open boats, sailing rules and so many other valuable information you will find in the pages of this truly classic publication which has not lost its practicality since the time of its initial release.
