Mr. Maté, author of the nautical classics From a Bare Hull, The finely Fitted Yacht, and Best Boats, has a lifetime of boat building and sailing experience, yet for this book he not only drew on his own background, but spent months consulting the experts of everything from boatyards, to paint companies, sailmakers, engine repairmen and manufacturers to give us the most thorough and comprehensive book possible.
