Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Emiliano Marino is a lifelong sailor and has been making sails since 1974. He has written about sailmaking and sail care in Small Boat Journal and WoodenBoat.

Christine Erikson, also a sailmaker, illustrates for Threads, among other magazines. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"A clearly illustrated, superb step-by-step guide."--Cruising World

More than a how-to guide to designing, making, repairing, and improving sails, The Sailmaker's Apprentice combines 700 detailed drawings with a witty, wise, and philosophically probing commentary that is as much about living a life of self-reliance and harmony as it is about making sails. Here you will find a visual feast for the sailor as well as an indispensable guide for the mariner.

"The basics of traditional sailmaking . . . are artfully, lavishly, even passionately elaborated and enriched. . . . The author has created not just a new standard reference . . . but a virtual epic poem. . . . The best and most comprehensive book on sailmaking and sail repair to be published in a long time."--WoodenBoat

"Reveals true mastery."--Northern Mariner

"The accepted standard volume on sailmaking."--Ensign --This text refers to the paperback edition.
