This book is short and simple. Chapters have been reduced to basics and liberties have been taken, so that anyone can start designing quickly and easily.
Because designing is such a big subject, many problems have been eliminated by using simple "rules of thumb". Subjects like stability, speed and powering have been made understandable by substantial simplification.
A yacht designed using this book should look prettier than some of the products of boat factories. She could well be faster, and she should have that most valuable of all characteristics - she will have been designed lovingly by someone who does not constantly seek the cheapest way of making each component. Designs which are heavily influenced by accountants are seldom a success.
If a boat is ugly she will not get the love, care and maintenance she needs. She is unlikely to last long or give her owners and crew a full measure of pleasure. The way to learn how to design beautiful craft is to look at the work of the designers whose work has lasted.
