Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mendlowitz's superb color photographs capture the real essence of traditional wooden boats and have a quality that is a step beyond the merely descriptive. . . . In every picture you feel a spark of recognition of some elemental quality of the ship or boat.” (Julian Mannering - Model Shipwright)

“If wooden boats had a Dr. Doolittle, it would be Maynard Bray. He is uniquely at home in their language. Lucky for us he has shared here much of what he has learned.” (Bill Mayher, coauthor of Joel White)

About the Author

Marine historian Maynard Bray has provided text for each Calendar of Wooden Boats®, as well as for six books featuring Benjamin Mendlowitz’s boat photography. He lives in Brooklin, Maine.

John Rousmaniere has sailed in over 35,000 miles of offshore voyaging and racing. He crewed on the 48-foot Toscana in the fateful Fastnet Race of 1979.

The third in a wonderful series. Benjamin Mendlowitz and Maynard Bray began this series 20 years ago with "The Book Of Wooden Boats". Each book has been filled with masterful color photographs by Mendlowitz of some of the most beautiful and interesting wooden boats afloat and well written descriptions of each by Bray the technical editor of "WoodenBoat" magazine. Any lover of boats, sailing, or photography will enjoy these books. Anyone who understands what it takes to keep a wooden boat in pristine condition will be awestruck.
