Abstract
 
Description
Most new boats available today are stock fiberglass boats, manufactured to be acceptable to the "average" person. Yet most owners of new stock fiberglass boats -- and used ones as well -- are not "average" people and find deficiencies in their boats. They find that some areas of the hull structure need strengthening, portholes need to be added or filled in, hatches require waterproofing, freeing ports should be enlarged, berths should be added, and plumbing and electrical systems require improvements. There are hundreds of things -- big and small -- that can be done to stock fiberglass boats to make them more suitable for the owners' uses. As the author says in his introduction, there are four good reasons to modify your boat: (1) to make the boat safer; (2) to make her more comfortable; (3) to improve performance; and (4) to improve appearance. This book is a handy guide to meeting all four of those requirements, with specific advice on how to undertake specific tasks. The author has had years of experience modifying fiberglass boats, which he brings to bear in discussing the major and minor considerations that go into tackling a modification project. From the basic construction techniques to the finishing touches, this book will help you give any fiberglass boat the improvements that will make her more valuable to you. Numerous diagrams and black and white photographs throughout. - from Amzon
