Sinopsis:

This is the story of a supremely gifted sailor who became one of the 20th century's most innovative designers of sail and power boats.

Today, the name C. Raymond Hunt remains synonymous with some of the most popular boats ever created.  They include the classic Concordia yawls and sloops, the Boston Whaler, the pioneering 1960 Miami-Nassau race-winner Moppie, and the productionBertram 25 and 31 Sportfishermen, among others.  Designers still marvel at Hunt's bold ideas for powerboats and sailboats in a variety of competitive classes.  While the original 13-foot Boston Whaler pioneered a new market for versatile, safe, small boats, the deep-V hull revolutionized expectations of speed and seaworthiness. 150 duotone photos and illustrations

From the Inside Flap:

Those who sailed with Ray Hunt never forgot his special touch on the helm or his uncanny ability to predict wind behavior. Designers still marvel at his new ideas for sailboats in a variety of competitive classes, and for powerboats. While the original 13-foot Boston Whaler pioneered a new market for versatile, safe, small boats, the deep-V hull revolutionized expectations of speed and seaworthiness.
Illustrated with images from the Fortier Collection, the Rosenfeld Collection, Beken of Cowes, the Hart Nautical Museum, and other top sources, "A Genius at His Trade" not only presents the story of Hunt's boats but also explores the man himself. This biography of the most versatile yacht designer of the 20th century is long overdue. It's a book that any lover of boats, whether sail or power, will find fascinating.
