". . . the perfect place to begin, or continue, your education."
--Sailing

Whether you are shopping for a used fiberglass boat or prioritizing maintenance tasks on the one you already own, this book saves money--and perhaps even disaster. With clear step-by-step drawings and instructions, Don Casey explains how to recognize problems--both surface and hidden--and how to separate cosmetic flaws from serious faults.

From the Back Cover:

Become an Expert Judge of Used Sailboats

Step by step, the author of the bestselling This Old Boat shows you how to evaluate the condition of an older fiberglass sailboat―the one you own or the one you'd like to purchase. Don Casey's expert advice helps you:

  • Assess the condition of a used sailboat in 30 minutes
  • Prioritize maintenance and repair tasks for a boat you already own
  • Catch potential problems early
  • Know where to look and what to look for (and how to interpret what you see)

A professional survey is recommended before purchasing a boat―and usually required for financing―but with Inspecting the Aging Sailboat, you can consider and reject any number of boats before settling on "the one." This book will streamline your used-boat shopping while saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in professional survey fees.

"The perfect place to begin, or to continue your education. . . . As a reviewer of both new and used boats, I own many books filled with advice. I strongly suspect that Inspecting the Aging Sailboat is the one I will consult most."―Sailing

"A complete reference for the boatowner or prospective boat buyer on evaluating the condition of fiberglass sailboats using common sense and proven advice."―GAM on Yachting Magazine (Canada)

Don Casey is one of today's best and most trusted do-it-yourself boating writers. His nine books include the bestselling This Old Boat and Sailboat Electrics Simplified.
