The Chinese Sailing Rig: Design and Build Your Own Junk Rig is a stem-to-stern guide for the Western sailor who wants to junk rig any hull. Words and drawings clearly explain in detail concepts that have been successfully used for millenia in the Orient. Using Western materials and techniques, Derek walks the amateur designer/builder through all the steps to successfully junk rig their hull of choice. The emphasis is on adaptation of the Chinese rig to Western hulls. Clear and concise, The Chinese Sailing Rig does in a small book what others have attempted in much larger volumes. This edition is an update of the original that has been selling worldwide since 1981. "Van Loan squeezes into a small paperback what Hasler and McLeod did in a large hardback. Van Loan manages to get a lot of information over remarkably well." Classic Boat"Offers good basic instruction for fitting a junk rig to a boat of your choice...this book will, most importantly, help to keep it simple." Robin Blain; Hon. Sec. Junk Rig Association

The Sharpie Book traces the development of the sharpie from its earliest days to the latest plywood-and-epoxy designs; gives comprehensive instructions that can be used to build sharpies of all types and sizes; and includes more than a dozen designs and plans for sharpies from 15 to 40 feet from the likes of Chapelle, Kunhardt, Munroe, Boiger, Clapham, Kirby, and the author. A sharpie is a long, narrow, flat-bottom craft that evolved in the 19th century along the Connecticut shore as an oyster fisherman's boat. An 1880 report by the U.S. Census Bureau characterized the sharpie as "so good a fishing boat and so fast a yacht that it has been adopted in a great many other localities throughout the United States." To this add three more superlatives--easy, cheap, and fast to build--and you have the keys to the sharpie's almost cultlike popularity among backyard boatbuilders.
