Useful Articles

I have written dozens of articles over the years on all sorts of multihull related topics, many of which have been published in magazines. And of course a number have also been written by builders and sailors of Woods Designs. The best of these are collected here, I've separated them into different subjects to make finding what you want easier

I know some are quite old, but they do show the development of our ideas and designs.

These articles tend to be longer and more detailed than the ones on the FAQs pages, but you should also check those to see if answers to your questions are posted there (if not then let me know). It is also worth using the search button, top left, to type in a query, eg "hull shape" or "seaworthy"

Note, for copyright reasons some of the texts are abbreviated and illustrations may vary from the original. However, full copies of the published articles should be available (at a price) directly from the magazines
