I bought this book because I wanted to know more about wood finishes that would stand up under harsh conditions (specifically, chainsaw-carved yard art). I got some of what I wanted, and I learned more about boat maintenance than I'll ever need to know given that I have never owned even a rowboat.

The book is engaging. Interesting side trip into a foreign universe, that of wooden boats and the people who build lives around them.

We have been restoring an old wooden boat and have purchased this book in addition to a woodenboat restoration book. It has much more detail than the restoration book. My husband has used it as a basis for many other projects, he feels it is an excellent reference.

I'm just getting starting on wooden boat maintenance and this book has proved extremely useful so far. Although, I haven't read it all the way through, every time I have a question, I look it up, and it's there. Definitely a good book for a newbie.

Very well written with information from experienced workers .I would recomend this book to anyone who likes to work on older boats that have character and don't look like a pair of Nike sneakers..

As an owner of a vintage wooden boat, my relative, the recipient of this book I gave him, says it holds all the information he needs to do quality restoration work as it is needed.
