Autorentext

Brian Gilbert (Chattanooga, TN) is a lifelong sailor who lived aboard a Catalina 27 for four years. His total restoration of a basket-case trailer-sailer is documented in International Marine's forthcoming title Fix It and Sail (January, 2006). He recently sold Fluke, the MacGregor Venture 222 sailboat that was the subject of that book, and purchased another used trailer-sailer, a Montgomery 17. He is a frequent contributor of how-to articles for magazines such as Good Old Boat, Small Craft Advisor, and DIY Boatowner, and he writes and edits a newsletter for blacksmiths.



Klappentext

Find a small cruising sailboat and restore it to pristine condition on a budget that won't sink your budget

Small, trailererable cruising sailboats are more popular than ever as mooring spaces dwindle and marina dockage and winter storage costs soar. Fix It and Sail helps you discover boatloads of fun far less than a single ski weekend or golf club membership. Veteran sailor and journalist Brian Gilbert shows you how to select and inspect a boat, then restore it from keel to rigging.

Gilbert's clear, step-by-step instructions guide you through every phase of the restoration process from repairing keels, hulls, ports, and cabins to painting, wiring, and sealing. You'll learn how to evaluate, repair and replace hardware, upholstery, canvaswork, and more. Profusely illustrated appendices give you a vivid picture of the costs, tasks, and labor involved in an actual restoration project.
