Two top-selling books on antique wooden boat restoration, now in one authoritative guide -- The Complete Wooden Runabout Restoration Guide

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.
