The other day a new WoodyBoater reached out to me asking for advice about starting a restoration on his Capri. Any resourses out there. I suggested the local ACBS group, the Boat Buzz, and Don Dannbergs books.
Is email back had me confused. Dons book is expensive. i thought, Buddy you are about to really be shocked. A 20 buck book is expensive. So I clicked around and OH SHIP! $220 for one of Dons books on amazon. USED! What the hell? And some further digging found the Chris Craft book still on ebay at 500 bucks. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
So AGAIN as a public service to all. You can get that same Chris Craft book for $50-ish at the The Maritime Museum
Now regarding Don’s book. 4 bucks on Kindle. Sure its electronic. But its the information that’s important. And if you have to have the book, so you can write in it and so on. maybe some readers will volunteer to sell their books at a fair reasonable price. For the record, I have planned on sending our new reader my book for free. Because information should be shared. If I can find it? I know its someplace? I know it will be in the last place I look. So why not start there.
