Great Read
I just read a great book 'Spurr's boat book upgrading your cruising sailboat,' by dan spurr. I think i read the older edition, but i must say it has a lot of practical tips, ideas and great illustrations. while probably not the best read for the salts with bristol boats, it is good for the DIY'ers of the club.

anyone have other books they would reccomend?

fair well,

Here's a long-time "sticky":

Probably anything you'd like to know is in this thread.

Don Casey's This Old Boat came out in a second edition and well worth reading/owning.

I'll dig through my library this weekend and get you the names of other books I thought were worthwhile.
