Even the most well designed boats will suffer from wear and tear due to normal use on the water. And accidents can result in damage which needs to be repaired on the spot. Highly illustrated, with step by step instructions, this book equips the reader with the vital skills needed to make those crucial repairs. The Boat Repair Bible covers the most common types of damage likely to occur to boats of all types. Hull and deck repairs cover fibreglass, wood, steel and ferro-cement, showing how to deal with everything from leaks to serious impact damage. Standing and running rigging are covered as are deck fittings, hatches and steering gear. The section on general mechanics shows how to fix problems with a split fuel/water tank and leaking hydraulics, whilst electrical repairs cover tracing loose connections, replacing damaged wiring and fixing navigation instruments. The myriad of issues that can arise with the engine are covered in great detail, from how to deal with water in the fuel system to replacing the propeller and its shaft. And there is even a section on domestic items, such as repairing upholstery, and fixing problematic heads. The Boat Repair Bible is as comprehensive as it is invaluable and perfect for owners of powerboats, yachts, sailboats, dinghies and outboards. It is a book no boat owner can afford to be without.
The Boat Repair Bible is the complete, up to date, user-friendly guide to repairing motorboats, sailboats, dinghies and even outboards. Step-by-step exploded diagrams and detailed colour photos provide all the guidance the boat owner needs to repair their boat.
A very comprehensive guide to the many facets of repairing a yacht, covering everything from replacing hatches to major engine repair. * Sailing Today * Dip into any part of this book ar random and you will find yourself turning the pages wanting to know what happens next, or in this context, what you would do next to solve the problem...
