So, I have had, "The Complete Wooden Boat Runabout Restoration Guide" on back order since last August. This was from amazon, for about $50 bucks used. I have been trying to find another copy, but they seem to be $575ish.

Is this normal? Do I really have to pay that much for a hardcopy of a book? Is it worth that much?

Cheers

It would likely be much cheaper to buy the paperback, and have it rebound in cloth.

From what I can see, this book was originally in only paperback, and it must be in very limited supply to be able to command those prices. There is a note to that effect in the Woodenboat Store.

It is available in an e-reader version for about $21.00, if that is of any help.

Thanks, it is nice to know that I am not right out to lunch.
I find it funny that it would be cheaper to buy an e-reader and the file rather than the book.
Te search continues....
