    The Raft Book
    From: Paul Hirose

    "The Raft Book" by Harold Gatty has been mentioned recently, and quite
    by accident I came across a magazine article (Popular Science, November
    1943) which explains some of its ideas.
    How to Navigate a Raft
    The articles in the Home Workshop section aren't hyperlinked, but if you
    manually enter the HW page number, minus 376, that will take you to the
    article. During the 1940s the magazine got the bright idea to give the
    Home Workshop section a separate page number sequence which incremented
    from month to month. Apparently that was beyond the grasp of the Google
    Books people who set up the hyperlinks in the table of contents.
    In some Popular Science issues the Home Workshop section has correctly
    functioning hyperlinks. In others, the links are there but don't take
    you to the right page. Fortunately, the magazine soon returned to
    conventional page numbering.
