In this book, one of founders of the Old Gaffers Association has provided a manual that will encourage anyone who can wield a hammer and chisel to embark on work that will cut costs and provide the pleasure of working with nature's most versatile building material.

We are taken through the whole gamut of restoring wooden boats: tools and site, lightening the boat by removing mast and engine, moving the hull and then dealing with all aspects of repair and modification.

Scarlett covers the reparation of all classes of boats from dinghies to large cruisers, taking seven to ten-ton boat as the typical average, and spars, rigging and mast fittings are all included in their distinct sections for easy reference.
