Two top-selling books on antique wooden boat restoration, now in one
authoritative guide -- The Complete Wooden Runabout
The Complete Wooden Runabout Restoration
Guide brings together MBI Publishing Company’s two
top-selling boating titles 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, one of the world’s top authorities on the subject of
antique wooden boat restoration, 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. An essential manual for
anyone involved in an old wooden boat restoration project.
