simply common sense

Our friends at OffCenterHarbor.com have just released a beautiful e-book of The Common Sense of Yacht Design — the iconic book on yacht design by L. Francis Herreshoff. This book has long been out-of-print, and goes for $150+ on eBay. They’ve done a nice job presenting it in a high-resolution flipbook format, so it’s easy to read, and you can browse through over 390 photographs, plans, and designs in detail.
