The definitive guide from the world's best-known sailboat maintenance expert

Don Casey's Complete Illustrated Sailboat Maintenance Manual combines six core volumes into a single, utterly dependable resource that answers every frequent question, explains every major system, and helps you keep your boat and its components shipshape.

More than 2,500 clear and detailed illustrations guide you step by step through every procedure.

This must-have guide saves you time, money, and grief as you learn the fastest, easiest, most effective ways to:

  • Evaluate the condition of your boat or one you're about to purchase
  • Repair structural damage to your fiberglass sailboat
  • Improve or repair your sailboat's electrical system
  • Troubleshoot, maintain, and repair your boat's diesel engine
  • Put a professional-looking finish on your boat's hull, deck, spars, wood, and trim
  • Make and repair sails, sail covers, dodgers, awnings, sailbags, and bimini tops

"Astoundingly clear text and line drawing illustrations. The reader can almost feel the hand-holding this book provides through each step of a repair."--Dockside

Don Casey is the author of the universally praised This Old Boat, which has helped tens of thousands of boatowners turn their rundown production boats into first-class yachts. A regular contributor to SAIL and Good Old Boat magazines, he combines more than three decades of sailing, an innate curiosity, a knack for clarity, and an eye for the telling detail to deliver reliable expertise. He and his wife, Olga, cruise the Caribbean aboard their 35-year-old, much-modified Allied Seawind. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Don Casey abandoned his career in banking in 1983 to devote more time to cruising and writing. His work combining these two passions soon began to appear in many popular sailing and boating magazines. He is the author of the best-selling This Old Boat, and six other International Marine titles. He and his wife, Olga, are currently cruising and living aboard their boat. HOMETOWN: Miami, Florida --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
