This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to building, rigging, and cruising model sailing yachts. Written in clear, simple language and full of helpful illustrations and detailed diagrams, this book is ideal for the novice model builder, and will be of considerable utility to those with a practical interest in building model boats. The chapters of this book include: “The Rating of Model Yachts”, “Building a 36 In. Model Yacht by the Carved hull Method”, “Building a Model Rater”, “The Construction of “built-up” or Planked Yachts”, “Spars and Fittings”, “Steering Gears”, “Racing Schooners”, etcetera. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned introduction on model building.
