Learn how to repair a soft, rotted boat transom or floor in the latest edition of Secondhand Boat Workshop magazine. Now boasting 132 pages in a burst bound, square back format, the 3rd Edition is a full colour guide to buying and repairing a used trailerboat. The magazine contains a great deal of information for the used boat buyer, and step-by-step style repair articles for the home handyman looking to restore a classic old boat.
Secondhand Boat Workshop has a number of chapters covering boat maintenance and refurbishing - including how to keep alloy corrosion at bay, fitting an outboard pod, repairing a rotted transom or cockpit floor, and replacing underfloor stringers. There’s also a chapter on restoring an old, run down fibreglass cuddy cabin - the kind of project that hundreds of people now embark on every year.
The repair and restoration chapters in Secondhand Boat Workshop are particularly informative because they are illustrated with two dozen or more photographs showing (step by step) exactly how each repair process should be undertaken. For the DIY enthusiast, keen to tackle a repair job at home, these “how to” type articles are invaluable.
A range of other topics are also covered in the magazine, including how to maintain and care for your boat, engine and trailer, and whether to repower with a new or reconditioned engine.
For those people who have yet to buy a boat, Secondhand Boat Workshop has chapters on what to look for when buying a used boat package - or more particularly, how to avoid buying a lemon!
Complimenting the technical articles are reviews on 72 "Golden Oldies" - detailed reports on some of the most popular trailerboats ever made. In keeping with the refurbishment theme, the boats chose for review are older classics from the late 1960s through to the early 1980s - models which most people can afford to buy and then restore.
Among this group of boats are some genuine classics - such as the Savage Marlin and Bluefin, Bertram 25, SharkCat 23, Caribbean Crestcutter, Cruise Craft Reef Ranger and Raider, plus most popular early model Haines Hunters.
Secondhand Boat Workshop is the only publication available which is targeted exclusively at used boat buyers and existing boat owners. It has been written to help people through the maze of buying a secondhand boat, but also to show how to care for, maintain, and if necessary, rebuild a used boat. As a technical guide and reference source, this publication warrants a permanent place on every power boat owner's book shelf.
