Well worth the purchase!

I recently gained an interest in sailing/boating when a friend of mine purchased an old yacht. I knew nothing about marine motors and this book came highly recommended from more than a few experienced sailors, and it's plain to see why. This book is easy to read and filled to the brim with valuable information, covering all aspects of maintaining the boat's engine and electrical systems and I cannot wait to put this knowledge to good use. 10/10

A must-have for any boat owner - its the bible !

Its simply the best and most complete book on boat systems and maintenance I have ever read - I keep a copy on-board and one at home as this book allows me to fix almost any issue on my boat without having to involve professionals who often charge a ridiculous price and do a very poor job ... the knowledge and experience contained in this book is priceless to me
