Editorial Reviews

Review

. . .entertains, informs, and makes you think about boats in ways you probably thought weren't possible--Boats with an Open Mind is wonderful, its author priceless.

Bolger has a way of seducing even the lay reader into thinking about and beginning to understand boat design.''

Boat lovers who are used to designers who conceive the same boat over and over, camouflaged with a face-lifting here and there, will be amazed at Phil Bolger's diversity--Here are novel and wonderful boats.''

From the Publisher

Philip C. Bolger was born in Gloucester, Massachusetts, in 1927. He became obsessed with boat design not long after. He now works in a sculpture garden of experimental boats of his imagining, still in Gloucester. His hobbies are history, prophecy, and fantasy. In the spring of 1994 he married and went into partnership with Susanne Altenburger, whose tastes and amusements are similar but not identical.
