Description

The author recounts the year he spent at the Brooklin Boat Yard, observing as Joel White designed and then built the W-76, a wooden racing yacht with sublime lines. Whynott captures in loving detail; the painstaking craftsmanship of the boat builders, and the reader comes to appreciate the deeper meaning of patiently creating functional objects of great beauty. 303 pages.
