Description: The Gaff Rig Handbook is considered a definitive, comprehensive, and essential work aimed to anyone designing, building, rigging, sailing, or simply studying gaff rigged craft. The book provides a complete insight into the design, history, techniques and developments of a famous rig, which marked the golden age of sail yacht, evolved through the centuries, and lasted up to the period between the two World Wars, when Marconi-bermudian rig began to be preferred for reasons of ease of maneuver and reduced crew, essentially for cost reasons. The author outlines the practical aspects of the masts, spars, sails, running and standing rigging, and contrasts the development of the gaff rig in Britain, America, Scandinavia and France.
