After 13 printings and over 100,000 copies sold, From a Bare Hull has become the ultimate nautical classic and the reference book for both home builders and professionals. Ferenc Mate, author of such nautical best-sellers as Shipshape and The World's Best Sailboats, has written the most lucid, comprehensive-and rarest of all completely entertaining-manual on boat building and finishing
Though every page will be useful to anyone finishing off or modifying a sailboat, everyone who owns or is in the market for an already completed stock fiberglass boat will receive a thorough education here. The first three chapters alone--124 pages on how to spot a good, and bad, fiberglass boat--are worth the price of the book. The scope and detail of From a Bare Hull are enormous. For example, the 31 chapters include whole sections on hull insulation, rudder installations and cabin sole overlays, plus twelve page chapters just on hatches and teak decks and a 34 pager on tools. Though the subject matter is technical, with plenty of hands-on, how-to-do-it instructions, Mate presents it all with an engaging informality, as though he were working right at your elbow. With a near obsessive penchant for quality, he provides examples of optimum design and work, made visual through hundreds of excellent photographs and illustrations.
If you have ever thought of finishing off a hull or even making a slight change in stock boat, From a Bare Hull is the book to have. 460 drawings and illustrations.
