Find a small cruising sailboat and restore it to pristine condition on a budget that won’t sink your budget.

Small trailererable cruising sailboats are more popular than ever as mooring spaces dwindle and marina dockage and winter storage costs soar. “Fix It and Sail” helps you discover boatloads of fun far less than a single ski weekend or golf club membership. Veteran sailor and journalist Brian Gilbert shows you how to select and inspect a boat, then restore it from keel to rigging. Gilbert’s clear step-by-step instructions guide you through every phase of the restoration process from repairing keels, hulls, ports and cabins to painting, wiring and sealing. You’ll learn how to evaluate, repair and replace hardware, upholstery, canvaswork and more. Profusely illustrated appendices give you a vivid picture of the costs, tasks and labor involved in an actual restoration project.
