    Default Book info sought

    Hi

    Can anybody recommend a good book on wooden boat maintenance for the beginner? We are currently in the process of buying a TSDY.

    hi, from a wooden boat owner, if you need the book, do you know what you are letting yourself in for,can you do the work yourself,or have you got a money tree take it from me, its a lot of hard work, but good luck' and good sailing. rich

    Hi

    The reason for the book is to find out what I am letting myself in for. As I've already renovated a couple of old houses I have some skills. Obviously I'd get professional help in things I can't do myself.

    Anyway I just got a great book from America called Wooden Boat Renovation by Jim Trefethen. It's really well written and gives all the information I was looking for.

    Still awaiting survey report for an Osborne Kestrel we have seen (to compare with another which needs new superstructure - and I could do that!) so it looks like we may be going ahead with our wooden boat purchase.

    Thanks anyway for the help
