He is best known, of course, as the designer who created the deep-V hull. But you don’t get to that part of the story until about page 200 of this deeply researched book ($49) by Stan Grayson. Page after page offers anecdotes and photographs that detail not only the boats, but also the life of legendary yachtsman C. Raymond Hunt. In powerboat circles, Hunt’s legacy spans the 13-foot Boston Whaler, the historic 1960 race-winner Moppie and production powerhouse Bertram 31. Among the sailing set, Hunt was known for his deep passion not only for designing yachts, but also for taking the helm.
