The dream of owning, maintaining and using your own boat without great expense can be achieved with the help of the "Motor Boat Manual". Written to cut through confusing nautical language, it gives anyone new to boating the confidence and knowledge to buy and enjoy a motor boat. Packed with well-illustrated practical information and handy tips for both new and existing boat owners, this manual covers the routine maintenance, repairs and improvement of a motor boat for those with good basic DIY skills and has further information for the jobs best left to the experts. There are also useful sections on buying, moorings, and safe boating and handling.
Dennis Watts calls on substantial experience of building, maintaining, improving and using boats over four decades. He has written over 20 books as well as magazine articles on a variety of topics including all aspects of boating. Membership of a number of boating organisations and experience of teaching boat handling provided the experience passed on through this book.
