Shipshape by Ferenc Mate
Book DescriptionIn forty-six chapters, Ferenc Mate covers every aspect of sailboat maintenance, from launching a new boat, varnishing and oiling, and tuning the rigging, to maintaining the bilge pumps, heads and galley stoves, checking and repairing wood and fiberglass hulls. As well as drawing on his own many years of boatbuilding and sailing experience, Mate, author of From a Bare Hull, The Finely Fitted Yacht, Best Boats and The World's Best Sailboats, also consulted many manufacturers and boatyard experts. The detailed practical advice from experts like North Sails (on sail care), Edson (on steering gear), Interlux Paints (on polyurethanes), British Seagull (on outboard engines), and Concordia Yacht Yard (on wooden boat maintenance) makes Shipshape an indispensable guide to keeping your sailboat in safe and bristol condition-as well as a genuine pleasure to read.
