This maybe old hat to some,but a softback book caught my eye called `The Last Crusader` (John Cobb`s Water Speed Record Challenger) by Barry Stobart-Hook.Full of all the big names in Naval Architecture,and I see it`s available through Amazon £12.99 (£2.95 new/used) available since 2008,although out of stock at present.At that price,must be worth a read,for you can count books on high speed craft on one hand.Even Tramontana gets a mention in the foreward by Du Cane`s son.
