Comparable to a homeowner's remodeling guide, Optimize Your Cruising Sailboat offers scores of ideas to make a cruising sailboat faster, more comfortable, more seaworthy, easier to handle, and better looking. With more than 175 detailed illustrations and technical drawings, it walks readers through projects for:

  • Improving comfort, handling, seaworthiness, performance, and dockside appeal
  • Adding such attractive features as a deck wash down system, tandem headsails, a pass-through porthole between galley and cockpit, and many more

From the Back Cover:

100 ways to transform the sailboat you settled for into the one you dream about!

Comfort versus performance, seaworthiness versus accomodations, ease of sailing versus appearance--let's face it, you just can't have it all. Or can you? In Optimize Your Cruising Sailboat, experienced cruising sailor and author John Roberts draws upon his extensive research among sailmakers, riggers, boat designers, boatbuilders, and, of course, other sailors to describe methods for improving virtually every aspect of your sailing experience.

Optimize Your Cruising Sailboat features hundreds of crystal-clear illustrations along with step-by-step instructions on how to complete more than 100 boat improvement projects ranging from quick, inexpensive improvements, like creating a pass-through porthole between galley and cockpit, to more elaborate projects, such as installing a backup headstay. Optimize Your Cruising Sailboat is the total-solutions guide for cruising sailboat owners.
