A Life in Wooden Boats
By Nic Compton
Oughtred challenged the exclusive image of yachting with his philosophy of designing beautiful yet inexpensive wooden boats ideal for amateur construction. The designs were often inspired by traditional local craft. Iain has a cult following around the world as a result of his appealing but easy to build small boat designs. The photography in this book showcases the beauty of Iain's boats, as well as the stunning Scottish landscape where he is based. Nic Compton's text traces Iain's journey and the development of his designs, the growth of the woodenboat movement and the take-up of Iain's designs by mainstream boat builders all over the world.
