Do I have every book?

I want to have every book that is available that has a list of sailboats with specifications and hopefully a review.
Here is my list so far. Am I missing any?
  1. Field Guide To Sailboats
  2. Used Boat Notebook
  3. Twenty Affordable Sailboats to Take you Anywhere
  4. Twenty Small Sailboats to Take You Anywhere
  5. The Sailor's Book of Small Cruising Sailboats (Henkel) my favorite
  6. Practical Sailor's Practical boat Buying Volume 1
  7. Practical Sailor's Practical boat Buying Volume 2


Yes it is a sickness I'm in therapy.

Faster has a spectacular aura about Faster has a spectacular aura about Faster has a spectacular aura about
A Sailor's Guide to Production Sailboats by Roger Marshall (Hearst)
ISBN 0-688-05842-6

Canadian Sailboat Sourcebook (1983) published by Sailing Canada Magazine

Sailing Boats of the World (1973) ISBN 0-13-786129-x

These are very good but will be difficult to track down. (Make me an offer! )

I thought that would get a reply!

Ferenc Mate's books " The Best Boats to Build or Buy" that has boats like Pacific Seacraft, Hallberg Rassy, Swan, and many others and shows how they are built.

Books by designers like Robert Perry showing his designs with commentary about why he did what he did.
Designs of Bill Garden volumes 1 and 2
New book (coming out next month) buy Chuck Paine about his designs
The View from the Helm » 2010 » March
Offshore and Further offshore by John Illingworth
The Proper Yacht by Robert Beiser
Steve Dashew's books - Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia Volumes 1 & 2

These are the books and others like them that taught me about yacht design, not just about which boat to choose, but describing why a boat is shaped the way it is.

While you've got a good start there, you could buy a book a week and never catch them all. I would recommend you stick with a few that cover the types of boats you want to sail/own.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
