About the Author:

Don Casey credits the around-the-world voyage of Robin Lee Graham, featured in National Geographic in the late sixties, with opening his eyes to the world beyond the shoreline. After graduating from the University of Texas he moved to south Florida, where he began to spend virtually all his leisure time messing about in boats.

In 1983 he abandoned a career in banking to devote more time to cruising and writing. His work combining these two passions soon began to appear in many popular sailing and boating magazines. In 1986 he co-authored Sensible Cruising: The Thoreau Approach, an immediate best-seller, and the book responsible for pushing many would-be cruisers over the horizon.

Today Mr. Casey and his wife, Olga, often cruise aboard their own Old Boat--a 22-year-old, much-modified Allied Seawind. They've done all the work themselves, with no adult supervision.

Review:

``An outstanding guide for restoring an older boat; chock-full of information, insights and common sense explanations of the things we all need to know.'' (American Sailor)

``Great for the handy person who has just acquired a boat that needs TLC.'' (Bay & Delta Yachtsman)

``Casey's intelligent, practical advice covers just about everything, and his style is just what the doctor ordered for anyone daft enough to want to fix up an old boat.'' (Southern Boating)
