Book Review

Just got my hands on the latest offering from the man himself Dag Pike

FAST POWERBOAT SEAMANSHIP covers hull design and construction
engines and propulsion systems, navigation at high speed and boat handling at 25 to 100+knots.
I found it to be excellent something for everyone here only thing that let it down were some of the pictures, best Powerboat Book I have seen .

Funnily enough I was looking for this book in the local Chandlers last week - spotted it there a few weeks ago - should have had it then - none left now - will order off Amazon instead!!!

Just noticed they have a section on trim tabs and a seperate one on interceptors - be interesting to see the differences!!!
