The index in volume two is several pages long so I will not detail it here, but basically Vol II continues the construction of the hull through completion.  Volume III is basically a series of photos of Greg Herbert's build (Well worth having) and IV is masting and rigging.

Thanks for the information, Allan! It is a pity that there is no even brief description on seawatchbooks website. Just some "volume", whatever that means. Only the last volume is clearly described as "masting and rigging".

That might actually stop people from buying a book because they are not sure what is inside..

Sorry for the rant :)


I was going to buy only the first volume, because I was unsure if I need a second one. Now I know it, thanks to Allan, so I will buy first two volumes. Just a bit of extra information => plus one book in the customer order :)

Yes, Mike, the second volume is a continuation from Volume I to the completion of the hull and deck fittings. Volume III is a photo-essay showing Greg Herbert's excellent build of a Swan class model hull. Volume IV covers the masts, yards and rigging, including rigging and belaying plans.

When the site screen is a display for the whole of it, there is a column of links on the lower right.  One of them is for Sea Watch Books.

I just clicked the link and the entire series is still available.   I would not depend on that being a long term situation.  As I wrote in a parallel thread. 

my reading of the tea leaves,  of signs and portents suggests that if you ever want any of the book listed there,  sooner rather than later would be when you should

place your order.   I generally would purchase each year's new editions as a single order, so a large order is not unheard of there.
