My copy is the 1927 edition, so I expect it is in all of them. There
is a drawing on page 203. It is in a chapter describing his yacht Tern
IV (it seems all his boats were named Tern).
Both of his books, but especially the first one, _Yacht Cruising_ , are
well worth getting a hold of and reading if you are interested in
classic yachts and seamanship. Claud Worth began his yachting around
the 1880s and continued throughout his life, and became an accomplished
amateur designer, as well as being a prominent eye doctor.
