The Hinckley Company's craftsmanship is famous in boating circles worldwide. This Maine builder of high-quality sail and power boats is so fussy that they cast their own hardware rather than buy the lesser-quality commercial brands. Here is a thorough-going guide for any boatowner who would have his boat - no matter now modest - maintained and finished to Hinckley standards. Written by Hinckley scion Henry R. Hinckley III, this book is printed in full color with handsome professional photography. It covers paint and varnish; hull and deck maintenance; mechanical and electrical systems; masts, sails, and rigging; and boat improvements and upgrades. Like a Hinckley yacht, it is both beautiful and useful. We are pleased to offer The Hinckley Guide to Yacht Care in paperback for the first time.
