100 questions and answers in a notebook to learn more about the technical aspects of the schooner Tara.

Have you ever wondered how people can live aboard Tara and safely conduct scientific expeditions in the most remote regions of the Ocean? Naval engineer Caroline Ovial explored the plans and archives and conducted a survey among the crew members. Engineers, technicians and captains helped her zoom in on the entire schooner, from the hull to the masts.

“How much does Tara weigh? How do they get their fresh water supply? How does thermal and acoustic insulation work?”  So many questions that now have their answers in this richly illustrated notebook on the technical aspects of the legendary schooner!
