Famed yacht designer and author L. Francis Herreshoff takes us on family-style cruises in American waters, during which all sorts of boats and boating skills are explained while they are used. He tells about the adventures of the crews of the catboat Piscator, the ketch Viator, and the engineless whaleboat-style ketch Rozinante. There are anecdotes and examples and a wide variety of boat tore in each chapter, as well as adventures, races, and coastwise cruises and historical harbors to visit.
