Product description

About the Author

Brian Gilbert (Chattanooga, TN) is a lifelong sailor who lived aboard a Catalina 27 for four years. His total restoration of a basket-case trailer-sailer is documented in International Marine's forthcoming title Fix It and Sail (January, 2006). He recently sold Fluke, the MacGregor Venture 222 sailboat that was the subject of that book, and purchased another used trailer-sailer, a Montgomery 17. He is a frequent contributor of how-to articles for magazines such as Good Old Boat, Small Craft Advisor, and DIY Boatowner, and he writes and edits a newsletter for blacksmiths. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Brian Gilbert is the author of Fix It And Sail and The Complete Trailer Sailor, both published by International Marine. Fix It And Sail documents the story of a run-down MacGregor Venture 22 sailboat, from it's discovery in the woods to its complete restoration and relaunch.

Complete Trailer Sailor is a broader examination of the overall world of small trailerable sailboats, both used and new. It covers how to buy a boat, operate it safely, and maintain it well.

He was a liveaboard sailor for four years, and currently resides in Chattanooga Tennessee. His "day job" is audio engineer and location sound mixer for broadcast television and film. He's also been a contributor to magazines such as Good Old Boat, DIY Boatowner, and Small Craft Advisor, where he produces the artwork for the featured boat in each issue.
