About this title


"I describe what it was like to build and use my copy of Slocum's craft. I often hear from builders, the would-be builders, and those who are still just thinking about becoming builders. What I put down here is much of what I tell them. I hope it will be of interest and help to those about to build and sail a SPRAY, or more likely, those who will alwlays just dream of doing it. Despite the changes wrought by the 48 years since I built my SPRAY, I would still consider building my boat of wood, iron, and canvas, using the methods always used to build wooden boats."
