Artist Marc Castelli's passion for the nautical led him to an unusual community-based programme on the Chesapeake Bay: the building of a full-scale replica of the Boston-built 1768 schooner, Sultana, the smallest ship in the Royal Navy. The project became an obsession, involving daily trips to the shipyard and three to five hours a day of drawing for six years. From his drawings and remembrances, and the notes and observations provided by the shipwrights and volunteers who constructed the schooner, Castelli shaped this book. Building Sultana includes still lifes of tools and studies of workers engaged in fine detailed work or gross physical labour.
