"The Whaleboat: A Study of Design, Construction and Use from 1850 to 2014"

Recommended Posts

This one has been tough to get a hold of on the used book market, so glad to see it re-released!


The Whaleboat: A Study of Design, Construction and Use From 1850 to 2014 is back in print, and updated by author Willits Ansel’s son, Walter, and Walter’s daughter, Evelyn.


The revised edition of The Whaleboat is the definitive source for information on this important workboat type. Written by former Mystic Seaport shipwright Will Ansel, its 147 pages include drawings and specifications of five common whaleboat rigs, as well as whaleboat line drawings and construction drawings.


The 2014 edition of the book includes an Acknowledgment written by son Walter Ansel and an Afterword written by granddaughter Evelyn Ansel.


8" x 9", 176 pages, 152 illustrations and 8 foldout plans, paperback


Cost is $24.95 plus shipping, available via the Mystic Seaport Museum on-line store at https://store.mysticseaport.org/the-whaleboat-a-study-of-design-construction-and-use-from-1850-to-2014.html




Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.
