Nathanael G. Herreshoff is acknowledged as one of the greatest yacht and marine designers and builders that America has ever produced. His career has fascinated and inspired sailors, naval architects, and historians for well over a century. Former editor of Yachting, Herbert L. Stone said of Captain Nat, "His fame spread around the world and the period of his greatest activity, from 1890 to 1920, might almost be called the 'Herreshoff Era' so greatly did his personality and the yachts he designed dominate the sport. From the VIGILANT in 1893 to the RESOLUTE in 1920, every defender of the America's Cup came not only from his board, but from the Herreshoff plant at Bristol, Rhode Island. Many of his creations had a marked effect on the development of design in this country and he probably turned out more successful one-design classes than any other designer" In this volume, the great designer provides insight into his accomplishments through his personal recollections which, although written mostly in the 1930s, have never been published.
