Description: Every boat requires maintenance to avoid trouble before it happens and to keep ahead of the marks and dents that come with use. Even a boat in protected storage requires care, particularly the engine.
This is a volume of maintenance work an owner may reasonably expect to accomplish himself. It describes the essential procedures he should understand even if the work is done by a yard.
New materials and techniques have drastically changed boat building and boat maintenance. This volume is up to date covering plywood, fibreglass, aluminum, steel, concrete and wood. New tools, fastenings, paints and fittings are described in detail.
Every kind of marine engine is discussed from installation to trouble shooting. The section on diesel in-boards is particularly valuable and the author’s routine check list for keeping the power supply in perfect running order is a must for all boat owners.
Sailboat maintenance is fully covered with a discussion of the care and repair of masts, spars, sails and rigging.
This volume is encyclopedic. For projects like laying a canvas deck, replacing sheathing or even freeing a frozen bolt, the directions are complete, reliable, up to date and easy to follow.
