Toy 4944 : "Finishing a bare fibreglass hull. Has useful detailed information and diagrams. Helpful pointers for evaluating a boat for purchase."
"By following his instructions, backed up by many sketches and diagrams, the enthusiast will find that he too can singlehandedly, or with help, build, fit-out, and launch boat as sound and seaworthy, and far bigger, than any vessel he could afford to buy from a boat builder. And, amateur or professional, he can enjoy that same sense of pride in a finished job, well done to a high professional standard.
"Construction is traced through each stage from start to finish for boats ranging in size from a small cruiser to an impressive 25-metre yacht - what to look for when buying the hull, right through to the finished boat, fully fitted-out and ready to put to sea. Though based on fibreglass, the techniques described here apply equally to wood, steel, aluminium, and ferro-cement boats." from the dj.
