Author: Gil Allbutt
Publisher: Gil Allbutt
From Baird Maritime
A delightful and valuable record of what is now a fast dying craft and business.
Apart from being a true gentleman, Gil Allbutt is something of a polymath. He has conceived, designed, built, marketed and written about boats for most of his life. Those boats have been both leisure and commercial, FRP and wooden and from around three to seventeen metres in length.
As well, he has always been interested in maritime history and has made significant contributions to recording and preserving it through his involvement with the Maritime Museum in Queenscliff and, of course, through this book.
We are very fortunate that such a major contributor as the author has taken the trouble to record this important story for posterity.
