"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

About the Author
Hugo du Plessis has spent a lifetime with fiberglass. Forty years ago he was one of the pioneers, starting as a moulder and boatbuilder with a special interest in sheathing. Later he became a surveyor specializing in fiberglass boats, so gaining experience in the common defects as well as the elusive ones. He has, he says, learned something from every boat he has surveyed.
Hugo du Plessis has owned boats for 60 years, including a small charter fleet. This new edition was written on his yacht (fiberglass of course) while cruising in the West Indies.
