"The clear, non-technical language, logical development of the subject, and the scope of the publication make Understanding Boat Design a success." Naval Engineers Journal "This tight little book should be required reading." Soundings "Brewer provides as good a basic introduction to small craft design as you could ever hope to find. If more people read this book before buying a boat, they'd likely make a much better choice and be a lot happier." The Ensign "One of the cleanest and clearest expositions on the elements of yacht design ever published.--By a naval architect who knows what he is talking about." WoodenBoat
