'This work is significant. It is the first to include a method of assessing structural strength in the context of the modern marine environment' -Commander M. C. Cruder, "U.S. Coast Guard". Acclaimed author and naval architect, Dave Gerr created this unique system of easy-to-use scantling rules and rules-of-thumb for calculating the necessary dimensions, or scantlings, of hulls, decks, and other boat parts, whether built of fiberglass, wood, wood-epoxy composite, steel, or aluminum. In addition to the rules themselves, "The Elements of Boat Strength" offers their context: an in-depth, plain-English discussion of boatbuilding materials, methods, and practices that will guide you through all aspects of boat construction.Now you can avoid wading through dense technical engineering manuals or tackling advanced mathematics. "The Elements of Boat Strength" has all the formulas, tables, illustrations, and charts you need to judge how heavy each piece of your boat should be in order to last and be safe. With this book, an inexpensive scientific calculator, and a pad of paper, you'll be able to design and specify all the components necessary to build a sound, long-lasting, rugged vessel.What reviewers have said about Dave Gerr's books: 'By far the best book available on the subject' - Sailing".'The best layman's guide we've ever read' - "Practical Sailor". 'Dave Gerr and International Marine made a complicated topic understandable and put it into a handbook that is easy to use' - "WoodenBoat". 'Without doubt the definitive reference for selecting, installing, and understanding boat propellers' - "Royal Navy Sailing Association Journal" The Nature of Boats. 'If you are not nautically obsessed before reading this book, you will most certainly be afterward' - "Sailing". 'Fascinating potpourri of information about today's boats, modern and traditional' - "WoodenBoat".

Having been rather bewildered over the years at how scantlings in boat design were determined, Gerr gives a good explanation of how these are calculated in primarily two different ways. One, a traditional strength formulation according to materials and their use that have proven to be good over the long haul. The other is by engineering the whole structure piece by piece and how it all works together. This book aims at the former, as the latter is the work of engineers on specific applications and designs. I was hoping for some good help on traditional ply construction and got it, albeit brief. Gerr wastes no words, and what I needed took some searching--Gerr put it in one sentence! If you are leaning towards aluminum boat construction you will find lots of support in this book. If you are looking for a lot of info on stitch and glue engineering, you may be disappointed. However, the explanations of what goes into boat strength is worth the price of the book. Some of the pictures could be better, but what is there serves the purpose. All in all, a good book.
It has been said, "An educator takes something simple and makes it complicated. A teacher takes something complicated, and makes it simple." Gerr is in the latter category.
With an undergraduate degree in Ocean Engineering with a couple of naval architecture courses under my belt, I really needed a professional's common sense, savvy discussion of boat design. With each page read I visualized the different construction details seen at boat shows and on friend's boats, I can trace failures observed back to the discussions.
The author's writing style really livens up the reading! I have read many books on the subject, this and "The Nature of Boats" are my favorites to date.
My only criticism is that the scantlings were noted to be appropriate for speeds up to 45 knots, I would have liked to book to include higher speed designs as that is my current interest, still looking.... Otherwise, five stars!
For those serious about desiging their own boat, this is a superb book, Well written, well laid out, simple easy to follow logic. Thoroughly recommend it for those interested in the subject. David Gerr is a very good writer and a very smart person and it shows.
