Book Description Gaff Rig Publications, Maldon, 2010. Hard Cover. Book Condition: As New. No Jacket. First Edition. 406pp. Ilstd. with b/w photographic plates. In this book the authors endeavour to cover in detail the many aspects of rigging and seamanship that developed over hundreds of years and have been largely forgotten and lost in the passage of the 20th century. Both authors were fortunate enough to have worked alongside men who earned their living from commercial sail. Preserving these skills is important as it is conceivable that man will have to return to commercial sail, especially with declining oil supplies. The first section of this volume follows a crew, which includes the reader, on a voyage aboard a sailing vessel. The second section contains detailed explanations of the gear, terminology or actions, which are partly instructive, partly historic with clear illustrations. Publishers pictorial laminated boards.
