A Chronology of Boating on the Navesink River
by Hendrik F. van Hemmen (2010)
In this scaled down coffee table book, SNAME Fellow Rik van Hemmen describes the chronology of boating on the Navesink River. The book is a tour through time of a small river in New Jersey both in pictures and in words, but also provides a vivid picture of how people interact with the water depending on their economic circumstances, their geographical location or their available resources.
The book reinforces that naval architecture is deeply woven into a society's structure and that naval architects cannot ignore humanity's connection with the water, just like architects cannot ignore humanity's connection with the land. Naval architecture exists in canoes, aircraft carriers and tankers alike, and while the aircraft carriers may provide the bread and butter, the canoes provide the next generation of naval architects.
