1 The Tamar Boats: A Complete Reference Book [used book][rare]
Betty J. Percy Australia Foot & Playsted Pty Ltd 1993 0646136496 / 9780646136493 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Book 26.5 x 19 cm Signed by Author(s)
This book tells the stories of more than 750 craft, almost without exception privately owned, built by professional and non-professional boat builders and launched from the banks of the Tamar River. Racing abilities and tales of extended cruises are on record along with outstanding racing successes in Tasmanian coastal and Bass Strait waters. Inevitably there is also recorded for a few their loss through foundering or other sad circumstance. In addition there are items of historical interest about the River itself, together with old and pertinent papers, and photographs depicting varying sailing rig and styles of motor launches. The Tamar Boats can be regarded as a book of reference, and is a boating book with a difference as each craft has its own story to tell. Signed by the Author on the title page. Inscription on inside front endpaper reads 'To Uncle Trevor from Glenn, Margaret & Family July 1993'. Overall in very good codition. Dust jacket in Very Good Condition with some slight rubbing on front and rear.

Boats with an Open Mind: Seventy-five Unconventional Designs and Concepts [used book], Philip C. Bolger
2 Boats with an Open Mind: Seventy-five Unconventional Designs and Concepts [used book]
Philip C. Bolger USA International Marine 1994 0070063761 / 9780070063761 Soft cover Good Book 23.5 x 18.7 x 3.0 cm 
Here are 75 novel and wonderful boats - some strange, some beautiful, all of them paragons of Philip Bolger's form-follows-function design philosophy. A planing microtrawler; a glass-galleried, beachable birdwatching boat; a fully enclosed ocean-cruising rowboat; cruising sailboats that take the ground at low tide; power, sail, and rowing boats from 6 to 95 feet - these are boats as only Bolger's unfettered imagination does them. This is the first collection of Bolger's work in almost 15 years. It is long overdue. "Bolger is an eloquent writer and his comments run the gamut from hilarious to profound." - "The Ensign". "Bolger brings a kind of youthful feeling to yacht design - he would rather make precedent than follow it." - "WoodenBoat". "Bolger has a way of seducing even the lay reader into thinking about and beginning to understand boat design." - "Cruising World"."Boat lovers who are used to designers who conceive the same boat over and over, camouflaged with a face-lifting here and there, will be amazed at Phil Bolger's diversity." - "Boatbuilder".
