Re: Best Fiberglass Repair Book

The above book is all you need.

Repairing fiberglass is dead easy. You just need to know how the boat was built in the first place, which means you may need to ask the designer or manufacturer.

What are you trying to accomplish?

Boatworks Today is also a useful resource. Good to see different epoxies in use

If you are just starting out and learning the ropes, you could also add Don Casey's "This Old Boat" which covers fiberglass plus a whole lot more, basically most things to restore and older boat, make improvements as well as canvas projects. One stop shop.
