'This is the story of a happy boat, or so it seems to me...'

A fascinating story of a charming boat, Something About Navigator explores the development, building and sailing of one of John Welsford's most loved designs.

The Navigator has become an incredibly popular boat, with over 600 plan sets sold at last count. Robert Ditterich uses a narrative style to pin down the charm at the root of this popularity, while also extensively illustrating the processes involved in building one, fitting it out and using it. The Navigator 'in the wild' is represented by illustrated essays from experienced Navigator sailors and builders.

The romance of small open boat sailing, and the freedom felt, even just in dreaming about one, will make this book appealing to owners or aspiring owner/builders of many wooden boats available to-day.
