by Ken Hankinson Index, glossery, appendices, bibliography, supplier listing, 127 drawings,25 charts, tables, and graphs, 400 pages, 8 1/2" x 11", softcover, 1982.This practical "how-to" book is especially written for the amateur who may have little or no knowledge of fiberglass boat construction, as well as for the professional looking to expand his knowledge. It covers all aspects of the subject with emphasis on proven methods and materials. This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date book on the subject, explaining the cost differences, labor-saving methods, and how to avoid the pitfalls. By following the easy-to-read, easy-to-understand text, you'll have the knowledge to build a fiberglass boat equal or superior to one made in a factory. This book covers both female and male "one-off" methods using materials such as C-Flex, AIREX and other foam cores, end-grain balsa, FERRO-GLASS/STRETCH MESH, and even the "high-tech" materials such as S-Glass, KEVLAR, and carbon fiber. The chapter on the "9-STAGE" vacuum bag technique alone is worth the price of the book. This huge oversize text was written by a naval architect who has specialized in the design of boats for amateurs for over 20 years. It includes numerous construction details, trouble shooting, cost comparisons, tools required, resin types, laminate configurations, how to lay up a hull, finishing methods, gel coats and paint systems; in short, dozens of chapters covering everything you'll need to know to achieve professional results for the least amount of money and effort.
