A Life In Wooden Boats - For decades, boat building has catered for the rich and the elite, and has been out of the reach of ordinary people both economically and culturally. Iain Oughtred challenged this philosophy by designing beautiful yet inexpensive wooden boats ideal for amateur construction, often basing the designs on traditional local craft.
Iain is considered a guru by the boating community, and has a cult following around the world (but especially in the UK and US) for his exceptionally appealing but easy to build small boat designs. He regularly features in Woodenboat magazine and he still sells hundreds of designs to budding boatbuilders every year. This is a beautiful, comprehensive and ‘authorised’ look at Iain's philosophy and designs. The photography brings together the beauty of Iain’s boats and the stunning Scottish landscape where he is based — gorgeous sailing shots, moody building photos and atmospheric shots of Findhorn and Scotland in general. The evocative text gives an overview of Iain’s background, the growth of the woodenboat movement (eco-friendly designs with integrity, all very topical) and the takeup of Iain’s designs by the mainstream all over the world. It also includes insider info from Iain himself, as well as comments from other well-known boat designers.
