This must-have guide saves you time, money, and grief as you learn the fastest, easiest, most effective ways to:

  • Evaluate the condition of your boat or one you're about to purchase
  • Repair structural damage to your fiberglass sailboat
  • Improve or repair your sailboat's electrical system
  • Troubleshoot, maintain, and repair your boat's diesel engine
  • Put a professional-looking finish on your boat's hull, deck, spars, wood, and trim
  • Make and repair sails, sail covers, dodgers, awnings, sailbags, and bimini tops

"Astoundingly clear text and line drawing illustrations. The reader can almost feel the hand-holding this book provides through each step of a repair."--Dockside

Don Casey is the author of the universally praised This Old Boat, which has helped tens of thousands of boatowners turn their rundown production boats into first-class yachts. A regular contributor to SAIL and Good Old Boat magazines, he combines more than three decades of sailing, an innate curiosity, a knack for clarity, and an eye for the telling detail to deliver reliable expertise. He and his wife, Olga, cruise the Caribbean aboard their 35-year-old, much-modified Allied Seawind.
