Bill Mayher

Maritime Writer

Bill Mayher Bill Mayher started sailing wooden boats when wood was pretty much all there was. He has kept his faith in traditional watercraft through changing times, first working in yards and then owning and maintaining a long succession of wooden boats. For most of his adult life, his day job was teaching history and doing college counseling. In the mid-90s he began writing full time: first a book on college admissions and subsequently numerous articles for both WoodenBoat and Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors magazines. He collaborated with Maynard Bray and Benjamin Mendlowitz on the book, Joel White: Boat Builder, Designer, Sailor.
