Pat Manley’s bestselling book which tells you how to carry out the most common boat maintenance jobs.

By: Pat Manley


Colour photo-sequences and clear text show even a ham-fisted beginner how to fix their boat. The two aims of this book are preventing problems and curing them when they do happen (even at sea). This is the best-illustrated book ever produced on maintenance and Manley has spent over a year photographing each stage of each topic.

Simple Boat Maintenance concentrates on the 67 most common boat maintenance jobs. Each is rated for difficulty on a scale of 1-5 and is explained in simple steps with lots of photos and diagrams. No special tools are required and no skill is assumed. Take this book in one hand, a spanner in the other and set to work. Learn how to: solve most engine problems; look after the gas, water, fuel and electrical systems; service pumps, winches, windlasses & sterngear; repair cracks & holes in fibreglass; find & cure leaks.
