Description
In this remarkably thorough, step-by-step manual of sailboat maintenance, Ferenc Máté covers everything from launching a new boat, varnishing your woodwork, and tuning your rigging to maintaining bilge pumps and heads, repairing wood and fiberglass hulls, and laying up your boat for winter. Máté speaks to the reader with the warmth of an old friend who also happens to be a master of sailing—which indeed he is—and illustrates his points with 230 black and white photos and drawings. He also provides detailed practical advice from maritime suppliers like North Sails (on sail care), Edson (on steering gear), Interlux Paints (on polyurethanes), British Seagull (on outboard engines), and Concordia Yacht Yard (on wooden boat maintenance). A vintner as well as a seafarer, the multifaceted author is known for memoirs and essays like From a Bare Hull, A Reasonable Life: Toward a Simpler, Secure, More Humane Existence and A Vineyard in Tuscany: A Wine Lover's Dream. Máté's love of boats and the sea has also inspired a series of rousing adventure novels starring the wayfaring sailor Dugger and his half-Kwakiutl mate Nello.
