This is a book for those who work on their own boats written by an author who himself carried out all the many tasks he so clearly describes.
Given enthusiasm and necessary tools any owner will here find all the practical information he needs to keep his boat and engine in good order by his own efforts and at minimum cost.
The scope of the work includes timber, steel, resin-glass and aluminum hulls and there are chapters on the upkeep of decks, repairs to spars, rigging and sails, on electrical equipment and on the care of dinghies and runabouts.
Other chapters deal with choice of engines, the proper methods of engine installation and day to day problems of machinery maintenance and operation.
The book is illustrated throughout with over 150 explanatory drawings, each a further source of guidance and information.
