Looking for a Copy of Don’s “Complete Wooden Runabout Restoration Guide”

Post by North Woody » Tue Dec 25, 2018 11:36 am

Hi All,

I’m looking for a copy of Don’s book to help me with the restoration work on my new-to-me 1936 19’ CC Runabout. These appear to be priced at unobtainium levels on the internet, so I’m wondering if anyone here would be willing to part with a copy at a reasonable price. I’m not asking for anyone to forgoe an opportunity to sell a copy for a fair market price, but I’d FAR prefer to give my money to the enthusiasts here rather than to somebody on E Bay with no connection this fantastic community :). Thanks for any help, and please ping me if you’d be willing to part with a copy of this awesome book!

Super, thanks Jim ..... This is now bought and paid for, with proceeeds going to Good Will of Colorado Springs for a true win-win! Thanks for the help, looking forward to using this and eventually passing it on when we wrap up the restoration of my ‘36! Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
