This manual takes both novice and experienced boatowner through minor to major repairs of electrical systems, engines, electronics, steering systems, generators, pumps, cookers, spars and rigging. When it was first published in 1990, the Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical Manual broke new ground. It was hailed as the first truly DIY manual for boatowners and has sold in its thousands ever since. There have been significant changes in boat systems since then, particularly electrical systems, and this third edition has been fully updated to reflect these developments and expand its predecessor's worldwide popularity.

This is the best all around marine mechanical book out there. It is used as a textbook at the Seattle Central Community College's marine carpentry program. I'm a professional boatbuilder and I refer to it all the time. Nigel Calder explains some very technical stuff using precise language in an easy to understand way. If you have any kind of boat with an engine or systems, check out this book. It's good.
