About the Author

Born in the Midwest, artist Tom Crestodina has been working as a fisherman in Alaska for over 20 years and studied marine engineering at the Seattle Maritime Academy. After the birth of his first child with his wife, Ania, he began making cutaway drawings of the vessels he was working on as a way to communicate with his small child while he was at sea. After other seafarers began to ask for drawings of their own vessels, he went on to document the maritime trades in his whimsical style, and his work is now carried in shops and galleries all over the Pacific coast of North America. He lives in Bellingham, Washington, with Ania and their two children.

Reviews

If a photo illustration is worth a thousand words, Crestodina's cut-away drawings give us more like five thousand words each. . . It is no cliché to say that, for the mariner inclined, from eight to eighty, this is the one book that does it all.--National Fisherman

Cross sections and exploded views abound in the detailed illustrations.--Kirkus Reviews

An informative and fun book for readers interested in boats and how they work, and the target audience will be engaged by the high level of detail.--Booklist
