Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual: How to Maintain, Repair, and Improve Your Boat's Essential Systems

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In the past two or three decades, boat equipment has taken a quantum leap in complexity. It is no longer possible to keep things operating with a monkey wrench, hammer, and grease gun. More and more equipment needs specialised servicing, and the cost of professional help is going through the roof. While the public may think that boatowners are rich, in reality most are middle-income salary earners who strain their budgets to support their boating habit. The boatowner of today with limited funds needs a good working knowledge of all systems aboard, the ability to keep up with maintenance, and the means to troubleshoot and repair a broad range of breakdowns. The book is intended to make these three objectives a realistic possibility with respect to the basic equipment found on most modern, midsized boats, both power and sail. Much of the information featured goes well beyond the information typically available to the general boating public.

Second Edition. Internally clean and bright, with only a few instances of minor foxing. Creasing to page on underside of front cover. Wear to cover, including some creasing and a scratch to back cover.
