About this title:

Synopsis: Pete Culler was known for his handsome, honest boats with little varnish/brightwork. What might surprise you is how prolific he was, and how much personality was packed into his designs.

Out of print for years, we've brought his "design catalog" back so once again every design he offered is available for your viewing pleasure. It's jam-packed with lines drawings and photos as well as background stories of the designs and plenty of no-nonsense (some might say "crusty") advice, making it a fascinating study and a good read to boot. Author John Burke grew up next door to "Capt. Pete," and is probably better versed in all things Culler than just about anyone. You'll gain a true insight to the man from Burke's unique perspective.

On the cover: the 10-1/2 foot wherry yawlboat "AF Chapman," built for the wooden ketch Stormsvalla, she was originally designed for the schooner "Fiddler's Green."

From the Inside Flap: If you're an admirer of traditional boat design-and if your idea of a good boat is a practical boat-you'll find an astounding windfall of designs in this book. The pillars of Pete Culler's design philosophy were simplicity, economy, and ease of use. He believed that designs based on the working craft of the past could fulfill today's boating needs-and do so with style-while recognizing that many of these boat types could be cumbersome, even burdensome, as required by the trade that spawned them. In the words of author John Burke, "Captain Pete's lasting contribution lay in his ability to refine and enhance these workboats for today's pleasure uses, without losing their appealing qualities."

Pete Culler worked in a shop, not an office. He built boats, as well as designed them. His "career" as a boat designer was relatively short-the bulk of his design work was done in the 1960s and 1970s. Every design he ever put on paper-more than 100 in all-is included in this book.

The boats range from the "Good Little Skiffs" to the sturdy, ill-fated schooners Integrity and John F. Leavitt. They include a wheelbarrow skiff, a fast gig, outboard workboats, a sharp wherry, a double-paddle canoe, a V-bottomed yawlboat, a Sharptown barge, a scow schooner, fast launches, a 26-foot tugboat, a dogbody, a Tancook whaler, a Baltimore clipper, an express cruiser, sampans, shallops, sharpies, and schooners.
