Complete Canvasworker's Guide: How to Outfit Your Boat Using Natural or Synthetic Cloth by Jim Grant
Book DescriptionNow completely revised and updated, and expanded by more than fifty percent, The Complete Canvasworker's Guide, Second Edition, brings you Jim Grant's thorough step-by-step approach to constructing a nearly endless variety of attractive and functional gear for your boat. Grant, with his wife, Connie, has taught sailmaking and canvaswork for more than 20 years, and he brings an often intimidating craft within the grasp and budget of anyone from an all-thumbs beginner to a would-be professional. Forget that canvas always used to be made of cotton. Today it is far more commonly woven of synthetic fibers: acrylic, polyester, or nylon. Here is all the information you'll need to make use of them all. Grant's no-frills approach, refined over years of answering the questions of puzzled students, is for any boatowner who wants to take needle to fabric. And as tens of thousands of proud boatowners will happily testify, it really works. Here's what reviewers have said about The Complete Canvasworker's Guide: "Literally every question is answered in this book."--Yachting "Chock full of everything from basic information to a variety of ideas designed to improve, upgrade, and protect a boat." --Small Boat Journal An immensely practical book."--Practical Boat Owner "A concise and to-the-point workbook."--Soundings
