Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now MBI Publishing Company’s two top-selling boating titles—written by one of the world’s top authorities on the subject of antique wooden boat restoration—are available in one volume. In this comprehensive restoration guide for owners and enthusiasts of wooden powerboats of all makes and models built from the early 1920s through the 1960s, author Don Dannenberg covers all major woodworking aspects of restoration: surveying, disassembly, repair, reconstruction, and varnishing. But when it comes to restoring a classic wooden powerboat, getting the frame, planking, and deck right is just one part of the story. Danenberg also walks enthusiasts through the topics of hardware, running gear, electrical wiring, plumbing, instruments, upholstery, trailers, and maintenance. Fully illustrated with step-by-step color photos and written in an entertaining style in which the author stresses sound reconstruction techniques over preservation of original components, this comprehensive volume also includes resource listings, glossaries, and School of Hard Knocks sidebars.

About the Author

Over the course of the last three decades, boatwright Don Danenberg has earned a reputation as one of the United States’ foremost experts in the art of restoring wooden hulls to their former beauty and usefulness. An active member of the Antique and Classic Boat Society and a frequent contributor to Classic Boating magazine, Danenberg is also the owner of Danenberg Boatworks in Manistee, Michigan.
