Overview

Great Ideas for Upgrading and Customizing Your Boat, from the #1 Source of Do-it-Yourself Projects for Cruising Sailors.

If you're like most sailors, you know the deep satisfaction that comes from completing, with your own hands, a project that makes your boat a bit more seaworthy, comfortable, or enjoyable to sail. And for nearly a decade now, the number-one source of do-it-yourself boat improvement projects for sailors everywhere has been Cruising World magazine's monthly "Workbench" column.

Now Cruising World's Workbench brings together the 200 best "Workbench" projects and features Bruce Bingham's superb step-by-step drawings. The book is conveniently organized according to ten functional categories, including

  • Anchoring and Mooring
  • Electronics
  • Saloon, Galley, and Head
  • Machinery, Pumps, and Outboards

Cruising World's Workbench is must reading for any coastal or offshore sailor seeking simple, practical, affordable ways to improve a boat.

"In many ways, Workbench mirrors the very qualities the readers of Cruising World most value: self-reliance, resilience, stick-to-itiveness, and technical competence. . . . We all love our boats a little more when we invest a bit of ourselves in them. Consider this book one more tool in your inventory in that noble quest."—from the foreword by Herb McCormick
