Sea-Boats, Oars and Sails

Sea-Boats, Oars and Sails

Conor O’Brien
With a Foreword by Sam Llewellyn


Synopsis: Bristling with ideas born mostly of hard-won experience, sometimes of pure conjecture, and studded with revelatory nuggets of sheer common sense concerning small boat construction, setup and handling, Sea-Boats, Oars and Sails merits its place on the bookshelf of every sail-and-oar practitioner or aspirant.
This new edition is enhanced with inspiring new photographs, and design drawings, of the small lugger design ILUR by François Vivier—a design which embodies perfectly, in modern timber construction and materials, the qualities of sea-keeping, usability and safety advanced by Conor O’Brien in this book.
The many full-page and double-page photos are of An Suire (The Sea-Nymph) built by Tim Cooke, and sailed by him in the waters of south-west Ireland which Conor O’Brien knew well.

ISBN 978-1-907206-17-7; 216 x 156mm, 176pp, inc. 15 pages of drawings & 18 photographs. Softcover with sewn binding, cover flaps and matt lamination.
