    Description
    Expert guidance for the hands-on sailor--whether you’re varnishing a handrail or replacing bulkheads

    With contributions from leading how-to experts, this wide-ranging collection of projects from BoatWorks magazine ranges from structural, mechanical, and electrical projects to plumbing and cosmetic repairs and improvements. Much of this full-color guide’s information cannot be found in any other book. Nigel Calder, Don Casey, Mark Corke, Peter Nielsen, Charles Doane, Paul Esterle, Charles Mason, Aussie Bray, and other sailboat experts show you with step-by-step photography how to:

    Buy and survey an older sailboat

    Replace bulkheads

    Fix below-the-waterline holes

    Repair gelcoat, portlights, or rotten cores

    Paint, varnish, spray polyurethane, mark a waterline, or rebed deck hardware

    Choose a mainsail system, install a headsail furler or an inner forestay, assemble rigging terminals, or build a spinnaker or even a new aluminum mast

    Pamper an Atomic 4 gas engine, replace a Cutless bearing, maintain your diesel, and know when it’s time to repower

    Install a new fuel or water tank, upgrade to wheel steering, replace a propeller or deck hardware, or install seacocks

    Troubleshoot electrical problems, install cockpit speakers, or rewire your boat

    Replace lifelines, install a forehatch, secure your cabin sole, and much, much more
