  • Description or summary of the book: 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.
