    this is one good site to download books of naval architecture but instead of giving direct download link they provide download link from other shearing site e.g. rapidshare,hotfile
    etc.
    Hopefully it will help you.
    regards

    Tuppers Introduction to Naval Architecture is a Reader's Digest version of the 3 volume Principles of Naval Architecture. It is good and (cheap) should give you a head start. So far, I have not seen any typo errors on it.

    Try googling professional boatbuilders - they give free e-copy & hardcopy to those who are eligible. Though I highly recommend 'spending few bucks and get the latest info'.

    There are many older books in the public domain on this subject from archive.org. You can download the full book, which I usually prefer to do in PDF form due to the fact that OCR technology is still not very accurate when it comes to scanning long, older type-faced texts such as these.

    I just discovered one book on naval architecture by Thearle that seems promising. There are double integrals in some of the mathematics, but it does seem quite comprehensive in its subject matter.

    Here is a search link for "naval architecture" on archive.org for any who are interested.

    Some highlights from Archive.org's repository

    Here are some highlights from the archive. There are many books listed, but as I had some time to parse them, I thought I would share with the rest of you:

    1) Naval Architects Data
    2) The Ship Builder's Complete Guide: Comprehending the Theory and Practice of Naval Architecture ... (1826) - this looks interesting because it discusses ancient ship design as well as what was modern for its own time
    3) An investigation of some of the resistance aspects of the catamaran hull (1967)
    4) Optimization of an advanced high speed hull form. (1995) - a paper on SWATH design
    5) Prediction of sailing boat performance. (1976)
    6) A parametric study of the stress distribution in a four-celled box beam model of the ASR-21 class catamaran cross-structure. (1972)
    7) Catamaran wave resistance. (1971)
    8) Theoretical naval architecture; a treatise on the calculations involved in naval design (1877) - this text seems fairly comprehensive
    9) A complete class-book of naval architecture, practical, laying off, theotrical, with numerous illustrations and almost 200 fully worked-out ansers to recent Board of education examination questions (1918) - this appears to be a text book and it has a preliminary chapter on the maths involved in the calculations.
