Vintage Yachts--good book

Dont know if you guys have hastings book stores where you are, but I got this off the clearance rack for 2.99! Really well photographed with a lot of different designers (ie william fife) represented... for 2.99 you cant beat it.

iirc it focus on boats from 1890ish to 1955ish. some real beauties

For that price is hard to get better
