Product Description

Over 150 years ago, the skills needed to operate a merchant sailing vessel were many and varied. Even as not nearly as much in demand today as they were in the days of the Yankee clippers, these skills on the other hand remain important and necessary to today’s yachtsmen and owners of smaller pleasure boats.
In this excellent handbook on basic shipboard skills, marine expert Hervey Garrett Smith offers boating and yachting enthusiasts a complete course in rigging, working, and maintaining a ship. More than 100 illustrations lend a hand the reader grasp the fundamentals and fine points of handling a ship Even as the creator describes in detail a sailor’s tools, basic knots, and useful hitches in addition to the arts of splicing, handsewing, and canvas work.
Other topics equally important to protected, economical, and efficient boat maintenance and management include belaying, coiling, and stowing; towing procedures; how to make a chafing gear; and a lot more. Easy-to-follow instructions for fashioning decorative knots, ornamental coverings, and nettings, and even how to make a proper bucket round out this engaging and informative guide.
Packed with useful “hands-on” information conveyed in a chatty, humorous style, The Arts of the Sailor is the very best book to keep aboard ship for study and for able reference when you want to. It also makes delightful reading for armchair sailors and the legions of landlubbers with an interest in the sea.
