Product Description:
Volume II, L.Francis Herreshoff:The Flowering of Genius, 1931-1972, covers the second half of his life and many of his most beautiful and influential designs. With 230 plans and 146 illustrations, this volume features the notable 1931 ocean racer Landfall, the supremely beautiful Tioga, the magnificent Tioga II/Ticonderoga, and the distinctive 12-Metre Mitena; Francis's long relationship with The Rudder, including his popular How-To-Build series that introduced readers to the H-28, and his thoughtful articles that were subsequently published as The Common Sense of Yacht Design and The Compleat Cruiser; his innovative shallow-draft coastal cruisers; his love of powerboats, good motors, and fine engineering; and his final years in the Castle, his unique home overlooking Marblehead Harbor. His was a genius that still resonates with those who admire the artistry and engineering of fine yachts.
