The Big Book of Wooden Boat Restoration is the perfect introduction or reference guide for wooden boat lovers both experienced and new. Author Thomas Larsson, one of Sweden's most experienced and premier wooden boat restorers, has gathered his thorough knowledge of the subject for the reader and placed it in this book with informative facts and an extensive glossary, accessible to new hobbyists and longtime boat lovers alike. This book contains chapters on boat care, including winter maintenance, racing, finishing, and stripping. You will also find current information on boat building, gluing, and tools. The most extensive part of this book consists of chapters that describe the detailed clean repair of wooden boats - everything from plug-accession and bonding to changing socks and bottom engine installation. Larsson includes a history of boat building and provides a nice glimpse of different wooden boats with over 200 sketches and photos in both color and black-and-white. He explains how staying on top of maintenance keeps a unique fleet of wooden boats alive. With practical instructions and fact-boxes with advice and tips, this book will teach you all about maintenance: surface treatment, scraping the hull, equipping the boat in the spring, and looking after it in the winter, as well as tips about buying a boat, installing an engine, and more.
