    Default Some boaty books for free.

    I'm doing some cleaning out and now that I know that I'm never sailing to Micronesia, or building a boat bigger than about 16 feet, some stuff has gotta go.

    Cruising

    Landfalls of Paradise, 4th Edition, Earl Hinz...basically a 1999 guide to the Pacific Islands - paperback
    Micronesia - Lonely Planet travel guide - paperback
    A Song for Satawal - quirky travelogue, of sorts. -hardback

    Racing: A total classic...

    Race Your Boat Right by Arthur Knapp - 1952 - hardback



    Boatbuilding/Design books


    Marine Diesel Engines, 2nd edition - Nigel Calder
    Principles of Yacht Design - Larsson and Eliasson IMI hardback, NICE book.
    Boatbuilding Manual - Stewart ...another NICE book heavy on traditional methods. Hardback
    The New Cold Molded Boatbuilding - Reuel Parker - paperback
    The Gougeon Brothers on Boat Construction - hardback
    Buehlers Backyard Boatbuilding - quirky paperback
    From a Bare Hull - Ferenc Mate..a classic, very dated now, hardback

    I'll break this subset up but you have to take at least 4 of them. I'm not going to the post office 16 times to mail a book to everybody who wants just one. Books are free, you just gotta come up with Postage. first come, first served in my mailroom.

    What a kind offer to pass these along.
    I'm always trying to add to my library of boat building information and as a bonus I share/lend out to my students when they have interest.

    I already have Calder's Marine Diesel, but I would be interested in:

    Principles of Yacht Design - Larsson and Eliasson IMI hardback, NICE book.
    Boatbuilding Manual - Stewart ...another NICE book heavy on traditional methods. Hardback
    The New Cold Molded Boatbuilding - Reuel Parker - paperback
    The Gougeon Brothers on Boat Construction - hardback
    Buehlers Backyard Boatbuilding - quirky paperback
    From a Bare Hull - Ferenc Mate..a classic, very dated now, hardback

    I'll PM you too.

    Excellent! It was making me sad thinking I'd have to drop them in the trash!

    Part of the collection went to a forumite, a stack of about a dozen went to pastor Greg at church, and since two yacht clubs said "no thanks" I dropped the rest off at a used bookstore.
