The final book in the “famed” Swan series has been revised and expanded. Sixteen pages have been added to fully demonstrate David’s method of making and installing sails. David follows Royal Navy establishment specifications for an English Sixth Rate Sloop and takes you through the construction of masts and spars. Next he provides instruction on installing standing and running rigging and construction of a full suit of sails. A special color section and three sheets of rigging plans in a rear pocket completes this volume.
