By Dave Gerr

In the clear, friendly, nontechnical style that has made his column for Offshore magazine so enduring and popular, Dave Gerr explains everything from how thick a hull should be to why one sailboat tips less than another, from choosing an engine to designing a rig for your trawler yacht, from building a dinghy to simple rules of thumb for dozens of design quandaries. The Nature of Boats is a browser's reference to understanding how boats tick: all you've ever wanted to know about boats--power and sail, racer and cruiser; dinghy and motoryacht. 406pp. Softcover, 1995.
