More about this author

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.

Description

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After just a few years, cabins can all too often look tired, outdated and in desperate need of renovation.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.


Mike Westin is a marine journalist and in his spare time a DIY boat repairer. He has owned and worked on a variety of boats, both power and sail, so is fully in tune with what boat builders and repairers need to know when taking on projects of this nature.
