THE RESTORA­TION HAND­BOOK FOR YACHTS

Yachting Monthly - - BOOK CLUB -

En­ric Roselló, Fern­hurst

Samba is a Prim­rose-de­signed North Wind 40 glass­fi­bre yacht. She was built in the late 1970s and has the ca­pac­ity to in­spire pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion – the first re­quire­ment for a suc­cess­ful restora­tion project. This is a minutely de­tailed, in­ten­sively pho­tographed book pre­sent­ing the in­di­vid­ual project in dis­crete sec­tions that will of­fer guid­ance to any­one tak­ing a long hard look at the fu­ture po­ten­tial of their own ves­sel. As some­one who still sails with a pink plas­tic wash­ing-up bowl, I’ll ad­mit to skip­ping the ad­vice on dou­ble sinks, yet Roselló is right in so many key re­spects – the value of de­clut­ter­ing, of know­ing one’s lim­i­ta­tions and never putting the tool­box away till the boat is ready for sea.
