About Author:

Mike Davies has lived on the East Coast since he was four years old and started sailing at an early age.
He bought his first business, hiring rowing skiffs on the River Ouse at Bedford and designed and built 10 foot and 14 foot sailing and rowing dinghies which he exhibited at the London Boat Show .

Moving back to Essex, he set up Marine Traders Yacht Brokers, covering East Anglia from Kings Lynn in Norfolk to Southend-on-Sea in Essex, visiting many boatyards, boat builders and marinas.

Retiring in 2004 he commenced writing this book, completing and publishing it in October 2009.

Please note!: It is only available now on DVD, playable on computers and laptops using Adobe Reader (free online download) - See Payments for Order information.

There have been great changes in the design and building techniques used over the years and as one reads through the book, these come to light and are illustrated with drawings and many photographs showing the changing shape of yachts and various materials used, from the traditional long established wood to ferrocement, steel, alloy and of course the most popular material used today, glass re-inforced plastic (GRP).
