Editorial Reviews

The concise but thorough How to Paint Your Boat by Nigel Clegg, now in its second edition, should help clear up many of the questions associated with making a boat look pretty. Clegg details every step of painting, varnishing and antifouling, from surface preparation to understanding material characteristics to getting a flawless finish. The book was initially printed in Britain, so some of the product brands Clegg discusses are not available in the United States, and likewise brands more familiar to us, such as Pettit and Interlux, are not discussed. However, the practical science behind the coatings and surface materials remains much the same no matter where you are in the world.
Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal
How to Paint Your Boat provides practical advice that will instruct both the beginner and experienced sailor. Once your engine and sails are selected don t forget to protect your boat with the proper paint. Nigel Clegg offers up more than 30 years of paint experience so that you can achieve correct surface preparation and application methods, be able to estimate quantities and drying times, and how to deal with defects. More than a catchy finish, painting your boat is a crucial step in protecting your vessel, so make sure you do it right.
Latitudes & Attitudes
You all know that two sure things in life are death and taxes, and if you are a boat owner you can add a third. That's the fact that someday, somewhere, you will be standing with a paintbrush in hand looking at a pile of old sandpaper, getting ready to slap some paint on your boat. In order to know just what it is you need to do, we suggest you get your hands on this book. It will help you decide the right way to do it, so, with luck, you won t have to do it again for years!
