DIY Repairs & Renovating

Without doubt, one of the most popular sections in the Library! We are very proud of the considerable volume of work the original F&B, then the The Boat Mag, and Australian Boat Mag (ABM) and finally Australian Boating (AB), has produced over the years, and are happy to have assisted, guided, or hopefully inspired fellow enthusiasts and boat owners to go forth and re-build that transom, make that GRP icebox themselves, or even tackle a complete chassis and floor rebuild. There is no limit to the projects our readers have undertaken, or in the type and size of craft involved, but as the cost of new boats continues to grow, an increasing number of boatowners have decided it is a whole lot easier to (a) renovate (b) re-power (c) re-equip or (d) all of these options (!) than go through the hoops to secure a new model that is probably not as user friendly (or familiar) as the one they have.
