Friends,

I'm trying to find a copy of the above book by DON DANENBERG. - Looked all over the place W/O finding a copy for sale, at less than a "scalper's price", like 275.oo-300.oo for a 30.oo book.

Even called the former publisher & was told, "The author has changed publishers, but we don't know who he's now using. We've heard that it is back in print."

Does anyone here KNOW who Mr. Danenberg's new publisher is, knows a dealer/store who has a copy for sale OR has a copy that is "surplus" to your own needs?

THANKS for reading this.

yours, satx

Satx, go to his website danenbergboatworks.com and check the forum. I think they talked about it not too long ago. You could join the group and ask the question, haven't seen it brought up for a little while, but I haven't been on in a little while either.

I have NEITHER a smart-phone NOR a tablet.
(I'm only semi-literate in computers, that's why I'm looking for a PRINTED book.)

Here is Don Dannenbergs business site. I bet you could go on there and send him an email. Maybe he has a few cases in the garage.

skip,

I've never restored an antique wooden boat and want to read/digest the whole thing. - I suspect that I'll have to learn a whole new set of skills.

Don Danenberg originally wrote 2 books. THE COMPLETE WOODEN RUNABOUT RESTORATION GUIDE is the same info inside "one cover".

Inasmuch as I'm not interested in "making someone wealthy" (One guy sent me an email offering me a used copy for FIVE HUNDRED BUCKS.), I'm going to try to get our public library to order me a copy through ILL.

Funny this subject is coming up now. I had sold the original Dannenberg book just a few months ago I think on this site, or was it the Century Boat club site?? I had it listed on ebay and never got one hit. Today I got an inquiry about it through ebay asking if I still had it. I sold it for the original store price,around $25.

63 Sabre,

Fwiw, about 30 minutes ago, a "fine fellow" offered me "a well-used but still legible copy" for 175.oo + S&H.
(Personally, I would be ASHAMED to try to take advantage of another hobbyist in that way, but that's just me. = IF I had cases of these books, I would "dole them out one to a customer" at original retail or below.)

Btw, I emailed Mr. Danenberg & have, as yet, received no response.

That's downright greedy of some people. I used mine while I rebuilt my Century and it was just sitting in my toolbox. I bought it at Barnes and Noble new. Why not let someone else get use out of it without being gouged. If it's not available anymore and we aren't using them, pass 'em on.

Don Danenberg does not own the publishing rights to the book. The publisher does. Don get's a fraction of a penny for each book sold (really, that's all). He does not control the printing or distribution. He does not have any copies to sell.

thompsonboat,

Andreas, I finally received a message from Mr. Danenberg (on another forum) about this subject. His message follows:

"They (the publishers) are apparently hanging onto some copies, asking prices that no one will pay, so they can keep the rights from reverting to me.
This way they can continue selling the digital version (22.00 I think), which costs them nothing to 'print'. You can still get that for Kindle or Nook.
I have plans for new books with updated procedures but I lost so much on the first books I just can't afford to jump into it.
This time I'll self-publish and not give them 92% off the top."

According to his comment, he received $ 2.40 per copy.

Cal,
It was on the Century Club site and went to a great guy. He lives a few miles from me and has a '50 Resorter he's going to restore. Thanks for helping him out buddy!

satx,
Well I can tell you.... you are going to need a whole lot of clamps.

There is only one rule about clamps...

Rule 1 : You can never have too many clamps

So beg borrow or steal as many as you can get a hold of.
Unless you have 10 arms, and can reach 13 or 14 feet across ?

Just my opinion ....
