Here is our new book!

“One of Howard’s” is here!


David Patient has been a shipwright for 42 years and ran his own bargeyard in Maldon. His extensive knowledge of shipbuilding significantly enriches this documentation of the town’s maritime history leading up to John Howard’s fascinating story. The book’s title quotes Essex bargemen who could not resist enlightening others that John Howard built the most elegant sailing barges. He also designed and built many yachts and other craft. Howard, a most respected Maldonian, became a member of the Institution of Naval Architects, a rare achievement among shipwrights.
