Upcoming ls build in an Exocet. Wanted to know what I was in for. I have a much better idea now as to how to plan. This book filled in all the gaps that the parts/kit/manufactuers don't tell you about and I know where the pitfalls will be. Well written to not be text book and detailed in a way that is also comprehensive. Nice job!
