For over fifty years Maurice Griffiths cruised in a variety of small
yachts amongst the rivers and creeks of the Thames Estuary and round
the coasts of Suffolk, Essex and Kent. In this classic book he tells of
the boats he owned in that time, and shows how the experience gained
with these small craft helped to turn him into a dedicated yacht designer.
There is more than an echo here of the magic the author found amongst
his beloved swatchways, so although this book contains much lore and
advice for the yacht designer, discerning owner and builder, it is also
a book of delightful reminiscences.
About the Author:
Maurice Griffiths was best known as a long serving editor of Yachting Monthly, and as author of the yachting classic, The Magic of the Swatchways, also published by Adlard Coles Nautical. Over 1000 yachts built to his designs are afloat today all over the world.
