    Default books on sailboat hardware/furniture

    Hello yall,

    I'm sure these have been posted but not much comes up in a search.

    Seeking a book or two on building multiple items for a sailboat. Want to start more simple with wood panel ceilings on to a new traveler bridge finally to the cockpit table. Wouldn't mind a few chapters with varnishing as well although I currently have Brightwork by Whittman.

    Thank you in advance!

    Drew

    Here are a few that might help-

    Roger Marshall’s “Yacht Design Details”
    Ian Nicolson’s “Yacht Designer’s Sketchbook,” “Improve Your Own Boat,” “Yacht Designer’s Notebook.” Not sure how much redundancy exits between these titles.
    James Skoog “Cruising in Comfort”
    Hervey Garret Smith “Boat Carpentry” (been a while since I’ve seen this one.

    Maybe look for titles on finishing fiberglass hulls.

    Good luck!

    LFH Sensible Cruising Designs has lots of (now slightly dated) drawings of the outfit of the boats featured.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Would Ferenc Maṭê's book be worth a look?
