The most dramatic way to improve a tired-looking boat is to refinish it. Don Casey's classic Sailboat Refinishing has been helping sailors make quick, easy work of this seemingly daunting task for more than 10 years. Casey helps readers select the proper tools for the job; prepare surfaces for painting and varnishing; work with old and new plastic laminates; lighten aging wood trim; oil, seal, and varnish wood surfaces; and save a lot of time, money, and grief in the process.
Don Casey abandoned a career in banking in 1983 to devote more time to cruising and writing. He is the coauthor of the bestselling Sensible Cruising: The Thoreau Approach and the author of the universally praised guide This Old Boat.
