You'll also learn how to select and apply paints, varnishes, and other coatings, in addition to sealants and adhesives. With Boat Maintenance, you get

  • Expert advice on more than 150 brand-name products
  • Quick answers to typical boat problems
  • Money-saving tips on using low-cost generic substitutes
  • Weekly, monthly, and seasonal preventive maintenance schedules
  • Data on the chemical components and environmental dangers of products

About the Author:

William M. Burr Jr. is a lifelong boater and the author of Sailing Tips: 1,000 New Ways to Solve Old Problems, a popular guide for boaters for over 10 years. He retired after 40 years in the chemical industry and then spent a year selling coatings and compounds in a marine store as part of his research for Boat Maintenance. He now lives aboard his 37-foot Jeanneau sailboat, facing and solving the problems addressed in his latest guide.
