For decades, boat building has catered for the rich and the elite,
and has been out of the reach of ordinary people both economically
and culturally. Iain Oughtred has challenged this philosophy by
designing beautiful yet inexpensive wooden boats ideal for amateur
construction, often basing the designs on traditional local craft.
Iain has a cult following around the world as a result of his
exceptionally appealing yet easy to build small boat designs, and
this compelling book shows just why. The photography showcases the
beauty of Iain's boats, as well as the stunning Scottish landscape
where he is based. Nic Compton's evocative text traces Iain's
journey and the development of his designs, the growth of the
woodenboat movement and the take-up of Iain's designs by mainstream
boat builders all over the world. This is the only full colour,
comprehensive book on this popular small boat designer, and will
appeal to existing Iain Oughtred enthusiasts as well as the more
general boat building market, attracted by the gorgeous photography
and drawn by Iain's reputation and the philosophy of the wooden
boat movement as a whole.
