Featuring contributions from some of the most famous and diverse figures in the history of yachting and sailing, from Thomas Fleming Day and C. Andrade, Jr., to John Alden and L. Francis Herreshoff, The Rudder Treasury is a timeless record of decades' worth of accumulated experience. This volume encompasses some of the best articles ever to appear in the legendary Rudder magazine, the premier nautical publication from the first half of the twentieth century. It contains a treasure trove of influential writings on a varied and exhaustive array of topics. The four sections contain Winter Reading (all sorts of cruising adventures), The Dream Ships (plans and descriptions of various boats by well-known designers), the Care and Feeding of Yachtsmen, and The Hurrah's Nest, a bilgeful of dogmatic advice, arbitrary opinions, and clever devices and methods. This anthology is an invaluable resource, representing a wealth of wisdom unavailable for the past fifty years. Book jacket.
