Kurzbeschreibung

1. Oktober 1993
For new boating enthusiasts - even if they've been at it awhile - there are scores of burning questions. If one boat has a round bottom and another's is veed, what difference does it make in the way they perform? What are the advantages of a cutter rig over a sloop? Why does one sailor swear by a full keel, while others won't have anything but a fin keel? Why does one powerboat have more flare in its topsides than another? And what is flare? Why do some hull shapes look "right"? How big an engine and propeller will it take to move that powerboat? What elements make a boat safe, or comfortable?"Understanding Boat Design" has been the place to look for quick, uncomplicated answers since 1971. Founder of the Yacht Design Institute, a highly respected designer for more than 30 years, and a frequent contributor to "SAIL", "Cruising World", and other magazines, Ted Brewer has again revised his classic primer. This new volume has been greatly expanded and contains information on many aspects of design that were not even thought of twenty years ago. "Understanding Boat Design" has eased tens of thousands of readers into the complex world of small-craft design.It is the ideal introduction for backyard boatbuilders, students of boat design, or someone looking to buy a first boat. 'This tight little book should be required reading' - "Soundings". 'A natural for those embarking on a first purchase, or the amateur builder' - "Sailing". 'One of the cleanest and clearest expositions on the elements of yacht design ever published ...by a naval architect who knows what he is talking about' - "WoodenBoat".

Pressestimmen

"The clear, non-technical language, logical development of the subject, and the scope of the publication make Understanding Boat Design a success." Naval Engineers Journal "This tight little book should be required reading." Soundings "Brewer provides as good a basic introduction to small craft design as you could ever hope to find. If more people read this book before buying a boat, they'd likely make a much better choice and be a lot happier." The Ensign "One of the cleanest and clearest expositions on the elements of yacht design ever published.--By a naval architect who knows what he is talking about." WoodenBoat

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must have book, but room for improvement 6. September 2001
Von Douglyss Giuliana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book certainly must be part of any boat design collection. Brewer covers all aspects of deisgn from hull to deck to power to storage space. It serves as a complete introductory resource covering the important aspects of each topic without burdenning the reader with details that the designers and builders must understand.
However, as an introductory book, it is missing some friendliness for the beginner. Brewer could improve on the technical definitions early in the book; in particular the description of prismatic coefficient left me seaching the web for a clearer definition. Brewer uses plan drawings to introduce hull shapes, but not teach the novice how to read such a drawing. Finally, some of Brewer's own designs are displayed; however, they lack detailed drawings and their minimal descriptions do not explain to the reader why the design was chosen or what tradeoffs were made, which would be particularly educational. Instead it just appears as a catalog of some plans Brewer hopes a reader might purchase.
All in all, I highly recommend this book, but hope the the next addition improves on this already valuable text.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Solid book for basics of boat design 8. November 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I've have studied a fair number of books about design. This was the first I read and it's a good thing because it's not too hard to follow but it is definitely informative. It helps to understand design terminology and how a boat will perform based on its characteristics. I think I would have been frustrated had I begun somewhere else (such as Chapelle).
The focus is fairly broad. The designs are those most often seen on the water during the last 50 years (no brigatines, viking ships, or submarines). They are both power and sail, and both displacement and planing hulls. The size mostly seems to be boats of the "yacht" size (20 to 100 feet). Topics covered include styles of hull shape, line drawings, keels and rudders, layout, safety, construction materials.
This book will help you understand WHAT characteristics of a boat affect performance (and I don't just mean speed, because there is much more to it) and HOW they affect performance.
After reading and understanding this book, you will be able to better determine what to expect from a boat by just standing next to it and sizing it up. You will also figure out a few of the goofy things production companies do these days because they are focused on making boats that will be easy to sell, and not focused enough on making a boat that sails well. Make sense? Many modern designs have goofy characteristics that make a boat look good on paper and in an advertisement, but detract from performance, seaworthiness, reliability, and practicality when out on the water.
Bottom line: This book includes what I believe it should based on the title and the fact that it is ~150 pages long. It is very useful to someone want to own a boat, or get into boat design.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Covers the Basics.. 10. November 2003
Von Tyson Zwicker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This a great book if you are just starting to ponder the mysteries of boat design and its modern, which makes it better for beginners than Chapelle's books. IF, however, you are looking for more scientific/engineering sort of information, then you will be disappointed. Bottom line- it provides a wide survery of yacht designs, but does not delve into specifics enough for those of use who already know the basics. I would recommend it to anyone starting out in the field, but it is less technical than, say, Skene's Elements of Yacht Design.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too detailed, yet not detailed enough 30. Juli 2004
Von Gary Aitken - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was disappointed in this book. I expected a well thought out, easy to understand description. The author starts out defining some terms, but omits others, and then describes things using undefined terms. By his initial definitions, one thinks "Good, this author doesn't assume I understand all the terms he will be using." Yet in the rest of the text he clearly considers that the reader knows a fair amount about boats and the terms used to describe them. Some drawings are missing important labels, and some explainations referring to drawings are missing important details, with a result that one is sometimes left perplexed. The book struck me as a quick gloss over of boat design with too much detail for someone in need of the grand overview. I don't think it had detail for someone actually interested in learning more about boat design. Someone interested in the quick basics would do better with other general sailing texts where simple principles of boat design are covered. Not sure what a better, more detailed text would be.
