Why pay someone else to upgrade your boat's interior when you can do it yourself? This hands-on manual shows you how, using step-by-step photographic instructions.
In this series of highly practical, step-by-step photographic manuals, Upgrading Your Boat's Interior shows boatowners how to improve their boat's living space in terms of comfort, functionality and convenience.
After just a few years, cabins can all too often look tired, outdated and in desperate need of renovation. But it needn't cost the earth or even require the skills of an expert to revamp them. This book will help owners to regain a little of that 'new-boat' feeling, including:
How to improve your basic facilities, from interior lighting to making your own fan
Simple interior decorating ideas to personalise your onboard space
Working with soft furnishings to create new bunk cushions and sprung mattresses
Creating workable storage solutions
Tackling major woodwork projects, including rebuilding a galley from scratch
Suitable for both motorboats and yachts, this invaluable guide is perfect for any boatowner willing to give it a try themselves. Each project lists equipment and a difficulty rating, and many projects are so simple that the whole family can get involved. With this book to hand, it has never been easier to bring your boat's living space into the 21st century.
