Maynard Bray was Director of Mystic Seaport's preservation shipyard when he compiled this catalog of 220 craft in the museum's collection. Each boat is described and illustrated, and valuable bibliographies are included for further reading. An appendix contains sample plans of 24 of these watercraft, from dinghies to large vessels. This second edition includes a listing of 124 additional craft acquired between 1977 and 1985. The only book of its type, Watercraft is of particular interest to boatbuilders and maritime scholars and traditional small-boat enthusiasts.
