Sensible Cruising Designs

Author(s): L. Francis Herreshoff

Nautical - Boatbuilding

The primary designs in this book are based on L. Francis Herreshoffs series of articles in the Rudder magazine of the 1940s and 1950s detailing how to build many of his designs. It was a very popular series, and a considerable number of boats were built according to the plans and instructions L. Francis included. We have added to these design plans for 46 additional small craft and cruising yachts designed by L. Francis.

It is our hope that his book will lead to the building of more and more boats from the designs of L. Francis Herreshoff. There could be no more fitting tribute to him.
