   This book germinated more than 52 years ago, when my wife Carol and I bought our first fiberglass boat—an 8-foot sailing dinghy, in 1957. At the same time, we started collecting sailboat brochures at boat shows and saving our old and dog-eared boating magazines in a closet, so we could keep track of ads and editorial reports of new fiberglass sailboats being introduced, in anticipation of some day moving up in size. Every few years we did indeed move up, which resulted in an even greater accumulation of paper. Over the years, the closet became a room full of literature—brochures, ads, books, magazines, plans. In the 1960s Carol wrote an article for Yachting magazine on how she and I had built a fiberglass cruising sailboat (a Carl Alberg-designed South Coast 23) from a kit in our backyard in Darien, Connecticut. Shortly thereafter I wrote my first boating magazine article. Figuring she was ahead of the game with one acceptance and no rejections, Carol retired from writing to pursue other interests (such as bearing and raising two kids in the 1960s, working for a local yacht charter firm in the 1970s, and becoming the first female harbormaster for the town of Darien in the 1980s) while I continued to write (and occasionally illus-trate with pen-and-ink drawings) as a sideline to my regular jobs for big corporations doing engineering, financial and corporate planning, business analysis, and consulting in New York City.
