Comments about WEST System - The Gougeon Brothers on Boat Construction:

This book contains a lot of info- maybe too much in places. Seems aimed at the serious builder. Good discussion about wood boat building- good photos and detail. If you are looking for epoxy how-to details the smaller West System books would be a better choice: Wooden Boat Restoration and Repair Manual or Fiberglass Boat Repair and Maintenance Manual (there are more how-to books too).
