The Sailmaker's Apprentice

£10.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

"A clearly illustrated, superb step-by-step guide."-- Cruising World More than a how-to guide to designing, making, repairing, and improving sails, The Sailmaker's Apprentice combines 700 detailed drawings with a witty, wise, and philosophically probing commentary that is as much about living a life of self-reliance and harmony as it is about making sails. Here you will find a visual feast for the sailor as well as an indispensable guide for the mariner. "The basics of traditional sailmaking . . . are artfully, lavishly, even passionately elaborated and enriched. . . . The author has created not just a new standard reference . . . but a virtual epic poem. . . . The best and most comprehensive book on sailmaking and sail repair to be published in a long time."-- WoodenBoat "Reveals true mastery."-- Northern Mariner "The accepted standard volume on sailmaking."-- Ensign
