Sea Library

F&B Project Log Book

This is what makes F&B (now called The Boat Mag) so special. In this section of the Library are the detailed reports about the development and construction of Peter & Ruth’s many Project Boats, since the early 1990s. This is the core of F&B / TBM magazine, and evidences our widely acknowledged ‘hands-on’ involvement with all sorts (and sizes) of boats. Over the years, we have purchased a wide variety of craft, fitted them out, set them up – and used ‘em up and down the east coast. These reports evolve under the magazine ‘s monthly ‘Project Logbook’ banner, and examine how they were built, how and why specific equipment was purchased to fit them out, and how they all worked out in practice. Many readers believe this is THE most significant part of the whole SEA Library, as these reports are unique in the industry. .
