Ex-aerospace engineer turned boat
designer Jim Michalak's pages include essays that are often more
informative on boat design than many books I've seen, and they're a
lot easier to read. Do check out his designs and links. His
catalogues are also well worth reading, and he's also written a fine
book on how to do boat design the way he does it, with a great deal
of careful calculation intended to make sure your design works as it
is meant to do. Needless to say, his own designs have a fine
reputation for performing as advertised.
David Robertson's excellent antipodean e-zine for small boat users and builders.
Duckworks pages and e-zine has some great links to boat building
projects, and an excellent directory of design sources. Be warned
though - if you like boats, you could spend hours looking through
all the wonderful material he has linked to!
