MODIFYING YOUR FIBERGLASS BOAT is all about modifying, reconditioning, and equipping fiberglass boats to make them safer and more comfortable and to improve performance and appearance. Modifying a fiberglass boat, whether it is one you already own or one you have purchased especially for the purpose, is perhaps the best means of getting the most and best boat for the least money. This book provides the information needed for modifying, reconditioning, and equipping all types of stock fiberglass boats. A special feature of the book is the practice projects, which allow you to practice new techniques with scrap material before attempting them on your boat. This book is aimed at do-it-yourselfers. Why do it yourself? The most obvious answer in to save money. But it's not the only one. Not only is having work done for you expensive, it's also difficult to get it done the way you want it. On the other hand, many amateur builders exhibit better workmanship because they can afford the time to take pride in what they are doing. Subjects covered include: (1) Fiberglass Boats (2) Fundamental Techniques (3) The Basic Shell (4) Keels and Centerboards (5) Cockpits (6) Rudders and Steering Systems (7) Engines and Mountings (8) Exterior Fittings and Trim (9) Anchor Stowing and Handling Equipment (10) Hatches and Ventilators (11) Interior Accommodations (12) Plumbing (13) Electrical Systems (14) Spars and Riggingshow more
