All in all a good book very well written.
It will save you time, money and make your boat a safer place to be if you can read and understand it all... It will take time as there are many pages.
If you own a boat, power or sail, that has any electrical, mechanical or plumbing system onboard, then you need this book.
Every boater needs this book. Even after 40+ years as a master technician I find many times a quick read of the book helps me in restoring this old boat of ours.Published 1 month ago by Sonny Reeves
The book came in excellent condition I bought used. The book itself is great but you should have a little back ground in mechanical work. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michael A. Bogdan
