Synopsis: Herreshoff was a designer of boats whose sense of beauty and proportion survives to this day in some of his memorable creations. He was also a sailor of rare perception, and his comments about boats and boating are entertaining and valuable.
The author treats us to a discourse on the history of yachting and spins a number of entertaining yarns about life on the sea.
