Description: There is nothing more satisfying for the do-it-yourself boat owner than to make something for a few coppers that would otherwise cost an ‘arm and a leg’ at the chandlers.
In this book author has put together a collection of sketches and instructions to construct workable alternatives to otherwise costly equipment required when we put to sea (or river) in small boats and yachts.
Most of the items included have been tried and tested, and many are in everyday use on my own home-built ferro-cement yacht Concrete Evidence.
Some of these ideas have been adapted from articles and tips found in yachting magazines, and a few have been invented out of sheer necessity. All of the items can be made fairly easily using simple tools (with one or two exceptions where a small amount of welding will be necessary) and often utilizing scrap material salvaged from the marina rubbish skip.
