Item description for Tail Fins and Two-Tones: The Guide to America's Classic Fiberglass and Aluminum Runabouts by Peter Hunn...

A historical presentation of restoration techniques involving the fiberglass and aluminum runabouts that were wildly popular between 1950 and 1970, this detailed guide features runabouts from mild to wild—the latter with automotive-inspired tail fins and colorful paint schemes. With an examination of the restoration process, including details on specific outboard motors, accessories, and add-ons, this guide to the boats that revolutionized family boating following World War II offers practical advice for both casual boaters and aficionados. Listing nearly 600 aluminum and fiberglass runabout builders, their contact information, company histories, and the boat models they offer, this manual is essential for anyone wanting to authentically restore, equip, or purchase a vintage runabout.
