We will be using several books, magazines and online resources for references as we begin to breath new life into this old sailboat. I'd like to mention a couple books that we highly recommend for others who are beginning a similar sailboat restoration project.
Both books are written by Don Casey. The first is titled "This Old Boat". This book walks the reader step by step through the process of restoring an old sailboat "on a shoestring budget". Perfect! The second is called "Sailboat Refinishing". This is an excellent book about refinishing decks, hulls, woodwork and a number of other sailboat structures.
