Product Description

This is the internationally regarded definitive handbook for anyone designing, building, rigging or sailing gaff rigged craft. It provides a fascinating insight into the design, history, techniques and developments of a rig which has evolved through the centuries.

John Leather outlines the practical aspects of the masts, spars, sails, running and standing rigging, and contrasts the development of the gaff rig in Britain, America, Scandinavia and France.

Originally published in 1974, this Second Edition, is identical to the out of printer version last published in 1994, although it has a new cover artwork, and higher quality paper.

'Regarded internationally as the definitive book for anyone designing, building, rigging or sailing a gaff-rigged vessel.'
- Kelvin Hughes

'The book's longevity says it all.'
- Water Craft
