"Speaking of Craig O'Donnell.... To date I've avoided listing Internet addresses on the theory that there are plenty of search engines out there and plenty of engineers to run them without my having to get in the way. But Craig's "Cheap Pages" are a lode of most interesting material, including the text and drawings of Herbert Warington Smyth's Mast and Sail in Europe and Asia (1906) and Tiphy's Practical Canoeing (1883), and deserve to be mentioned and recommended..." (Peter Spectre, WoodenBoat, June 1999]
