How do you build a boat? New Zealand sailor and designer Des Townson spent his life trying to find ways to make and use boats in New Zealand's waters. The journey of his work is both a national story and a wonderful yarn of a life spent messing around in boats. Brian Peet has chartered that story in his book Des Townson: A Sailing Legacy.
