From the cover: Surveying Small Craft is the standard reference work for surveying all types of small eraft. Now revised, expanded and brought completely up to date, it will continue to help professional surveyors, as well as owners contemplating buying a second-hand boat, to spot exactly what to look for. Whether dry rot, wet rot, osmosis, electrolytic action, stern-gland leaks, weakened keelbolts or suspect rigging, early detection may well save more than just money if a fault can be spotted before it becomes dangerous.

In this new edition, Ian Nicolson has expanded earlier chapters on fibreglass craft, steel, aluminium and wood construction, incorporating the latest knowledge and current techniques, and has included new chapters on power craft, outboard boats, engines and electrics.

This unique book has proved a boon to professional surveyors, owners, boat builders, designers, riggers, engineers and boatyard managers worldwide. .
