There are fewer than 10,000 wooden boats in America, but the circulation of WoodenBoat magazine exceeds 180,000. What is it about these boats that has captured the popular imagination? With his 'lively blend of reportage and reflection' (Los Angeles Times), Michael Ruhlman sets off for a renowned boatyard in Martha's Vineyard to follow the construction of two boats Rebecca, a 60 foot modern pleasure schooner, and Elisa Lee, a 32 foot powerboat. Filled with exquisite details and stories of the sea, this exciting exploration of a nearly forgotten craft and the colorful personalities involved will enthrall wooden boat owners as well as craftspeople of every stripe, nature enthusiasts, and fans of compelling nonfiction.
'Wooden Boats describes in loving detail how these vessels are made. . . . Mr. Ruhlman consistently comes through with touching lyricism.' (The Wall Street Journal)
'Ruhlman's deft blending of boatbuilding description and seagoing lore will satisfy even the fussiest of wooden boat enthusiasts.' (WoodenBoat magazine)
