I recently purchased an old Lund tri-hull boat. It is good condition but needed some typical repairs to make it like new. This is my first attempt at repairing and painting a fiberglass boat. I wanted to make some modifications as well while I am at it.

I really enjoyed the brief description of how fiberglass boats are built. I also appreciated having sections dedicated to minor repairs as well as major repairs. The safety tips are critical and well explained. The pros and cons of different materials is also well explained in the book.

The book is easy to read. I would highly recommend this to anyone new to boat building or fiberglass repair. Those who are more experienced will find the book useful, but somewhat lacking in detail. For me and my project the book is just perfect. I have read it and reread it every step of the way. It has increased my confidence to do things I have never done before.

Honestly I just gave this a really good review because it was shipped to me incredibly fast and just in time for my classe. With that being said, this book is much more up to date on today's lamination products, repairs, and techniques plus it includes pictures to help show each topic it describes.
I bought this book hoping to pick up a few pointers as I have a number of projects to do on my boat. My last fiberglassing project looked more like cottage cheese than fiberglass. Instead of just picking specific topics, I read the whole book. It has been helpful in the projects I've taken on so far. It has helped me improve the work that I'm doing. My stuff is no where nearly as nice as his, but this book really has helped develop knowledge and confidence.
This book does cover both resin and epoxy, and how and when to use each. I found the section on fairing the keel very interesting.
Normally you don't read one of these types of books, you just use it for reference. This one you read, a very pleasant change. Buy this, read it and use the knowledge.
