I had an earlier copy of Teale's book on yacht design and this one is a fine update to a solid, no-nonsense approach on the basics of yacht design - or at least understanding the basics. Teale assumes you already speak the language of boats, but even so I don't know if there is quite enough granularity in this compact little tome for most of us to design one of today's complex high-tech, overly-intricate behemoths, but there certainly is enough to understand and put into practice the fundamentals... which like the sea, haven't changed much recently.

But Teale doesn't shy away from addressing the intricacies of modern materials and structures, and even if one never actually designs their own boat, grasping the fundamentals in How to Design a Boat will leave the skipper nicely equipped to outmaneuver the shoe-salesman masquerading as a yacht-broker, or the sincere but misinformed dock-expert. For the serious skipper, who has already acquired a nautical lexicon, and wanting to better understand his own craft, this is an first-rate book to have around -- its brevity and succinctly being a great asset. But it is also a great little tome from which to begin pondering actually building one's own boat - especially for a potential builder who is contemplating incorporating some of their own ideas into plans drawn up by other designers.

This book was as advertised. It goes through the entire design process including builder considerations. As a boat builder, I had no idea how much math went into generating the plans! This book really explains all of the calculations in depth. As a math nerd to begin with this has a lot of appeal to me.

I am sure that Mr. Teale is great at designing boats, and he knows exactly what he is talking about. I found the book (as a beginner) to be non-understandable. It reminded me of my High School Physics teacher. He knew his subject and he understood everything he was talking about, but everything was way over the students heads and he could not understand why we did not understand his explanations. That is how I feel about this book. He refers to calculations and charts and graphs with no understandable explanation as to what you are looking at. I must be fair and say I only made it through the first 3 chapters because the deeper I got into the book, the more I realized how far it was over my head. Definitely not for the beginner who is looking for instruction on boat design. I will continue to look further to other books on boat design, maybe someone out there knows how to talk to a beginner. Perhaps later when I learn more about this subject, I will pick this book up and try again.
