The first limited print run is gone. We made a few minor changes for this second edition, and a new arrangement with an international company that prints on demand in USA and Europe will mean far cheaper postage for people there, Approximately 200 pages of information and images tracing the origin and evolution of the 18-Footer and other Australian Open Boats from 1850-1950, plus a complete how-they-were-built guide, heavily illustrated. Copies are available off the shelf at Boat Books in Crows Nest, Sydney, or through this link to the publisher Sydney Wooden Boat School's website:
Due to popular demand we now offer an A3 (42 x 29.7cm) poster suitable for framing, of the illustration from The Open Boat book of the rigs carried by 18-footers in the first half of the 20th century. Printed on high quality 200 gsm paper, your poster will be posted to you in a tube. The poster is $15. Postage within Australia $10, New Zealand $13, USA and Canada $17, UK and Ireland $23, EU $24, rest of world $28.
