Re: why so long?

His bulwarks and handrails are functional, not cosmetic like you see on today's boats -- they'll keep you aboard if you get hit by green water while working on the deck. He's in the Pacific Northwest and inspired by his familiarity and respect for the working boats of that region. The way he writes makes me think he'd be a fun guy to share a pitcher with -- there are some good stories in his book, usually with a point to explain why he designs as he does.

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
