DESCRIPTION

Even the most well designed boats will suffer from wear and tear due to normal use on the water. Whilst accidents are less common, they too 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 'first aid' skills he needs to make temporary repairs until he can get back to harbour. The Boat Repair Bible helps anyone who owns a boat to develop essential repair skills in the areas where problems most commonly arise. The section on hull and deck repairs covers fibreglass, wood, steel and ferro-cement hulls, and shows the reader how to deal with everything from leaks to impact damage, and much, much more. This section also covers domestic repairs, such as repairing upholstery, and troubleshooting problems with the heads. Amongst the many other techniques described, the section on general mechanics includes instructions on how to fix problems with a split fuel/water tank and leaking hydraulics, whilst the section on electrical repairs explains how to trace loose connections, replace damaged wiring and fix 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. From basic skills in safety, surveying and the use of tools, to advanced instructions on how to replace an engine, The Boat Repair Bible is as comprehensive as it is invaluable. With repairs specific to powerboats, sailboats, dinghies and outboards, it is a book no boat owner can afford not to own.
