There is something beautiful and nostalgic about wooden boats. These exquisite, polished works of art give us a glimpse into the past, a time when technology wasn't so advanced, a time when everything was crafted by hand. These magnificent vessels deserve our attention and our utmost respect. As beautiful as these boats may be, they do require a great deal of maintenance and care. This book has all the answers. Readers will follow the author on his adventures, sail along as he sails along calm waters in the summer, and watch as he restores each boat with the utmost patience. Boat owners will learn various creative and crafty preservation and boat care tips and tricks and are sure to walk away with plenty of new- found knowledge.
