Overview

The insights and wisdom of the late, great boat designer and builder

Renowned as one of the last and best of the old-time boatbuilders, Captain R. D.“Pete” Culler provided a guiding light for the wooden boat revival in the 1970s. His designs are classic melds of elegance and utility; his workmanship was akin to artistry; and his teaching and writing a blend of clarity, good sense,
insight, and humor. This book brings together the complete texts of Culler’s classic works Boats, Oars, and
Rowing
and Skiffs & Schooners, along with articles from
The Mariner’s Catalogs and a selection of his timeless boat designs.
