SUMMARY

A boat made of metal is the strongest boat possible. Metal boats can deal with hazards like ice and coral that could rip apart a fiberglass or wooden hull. Many long-distance cruisers choose metal boats for just that reason. However, metal boats are not mass-produced; the only way to get one is to build it yourself or have it custom-built. This revised and expanded edition of The Complete Guide to Metal Boats, written by an expert in the field, explains the advantages of metal boats, how to build or refurbish hulls, decks, and superstructures, and how to prevent corrosion. Special attention is given to building from plans and precut kits and sample designs for metal powerboats and sailboats are included.Three decades of interaction with boatbuilders and sailors have shown Bruce Roberts-Goodson exactly what questions need answering and where a word of advice can produce big savings in time and money. This is the place to look for shop- and ocean-tested inspiration for the boat of your dreams.Roberts-Goodson, Bruce is the author of 'Complete Guide to Metal Boats Building, Maintenance, and Repair' with ISBN 9780071364447 and ISBN 0071364447.
