Boat buying books

All Six volumes of Robert Perry's "Sailing Designs" as published in Sailing Magazine. Bob has reviewed a couple of boat designs every month since 1977. The reviews are opinionated, but his is an opinion to value on this subject. I bought a boat after much research and so no longer need them. $70 for the set plus $10 shipping

Inspecting the Aging sailboat by Don Casey $9 shipped.

Practical Boat Buying Br the Editors of Practical Sailor $10 shipped

Surveying fiberglass Sailboats by Henry Mustin $10 shipped

World Cruising Survey by Jimmy Cornell 1989 Ed. $8 shipped

Desirable and Undesirable Characteristics of Offshore Yachts Edited by John Rousmaniere $10 shipped

Choosing for Cruising By Bruce Roberts-Goodson $12 shipped

Shipping included in the US only, if you are overseas shipping will be extra.
