From the Books of Harry V. Sucher
Harry V. Sucher wrote in the early 70s two books "Simplified Boatbuilding":
The Flat-Bottom Boat, and The V-Bottom Boat.
As complement to our compilation of current boat types,
we show how he defined a number of those hull types more than 30 years ago.
Note: The scans of those pages are fairly large and the pages might load a bit slowly.
In fact, the original scan files are of a better quality, but are also bigger.
A big Thank You goes to Joe Tribulato for "lending" his books to this library!
