Fibreglass boats

Du Plessis, Hugo2010
Books, Manuscripts
This masterly work continues to be an invaluable source of reference for anyone wanting practical advice on working with GRP, in order to make repairs and improvements correctly and thus extend the life of their boat. In a deliberately non-technical manner, du Plessis explains the peculiar nature of fibreglass, its durability, its weaknesses, where it's likely to fail, the effects of use and the weather, plus the latest research into causes of the biggest worry for owners - blistering and osmosis.
