Canoe Rig: The Essence and the Art
You are about to enter a unique world–one of bold, intriguing illustrations and detailed, solid information. It’s a world of that will spark your desire to re-examine how the wind might best move your boat. And it will open your eyes to sail and rig configurations you may have never seen. Open this book, and be prepared to travel, sometimes for hours on end. Enjoy a world that comes from the mind and hand of a sailmaker with a gift for teaching by image as well as by word.
Author/Illustrator Todd Bradshaw has an obvious addiction to canoes, although you can easily apply the principles, concepts, and detailed sail plans to any hull that strikes your fancy. So if you have a daysailer, and you’re thinking about a new set of sails, you’ve come to the right place. Or if you are contemplating a leeboard, adding an ama, or just want a resource of ideas for a variety of ways to steer a boat, then take a look at Canoe Rig.
All the information you need for building sails, spars, leeboards, centerboards, and more, is right here. The artwork is backed up by measurements, so you can create in the flesh exactly what Todd has drawn on paper.
