Diesels Afloat: The Essential Guide to Diesel Boat Engines (Paperback)

£18.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Diesel engines are installed in just about every yacht and in most large motorboats and, while professional help is often at hand, sometimes it is not. Indeed, engine failure is one of the most frequent cause of RNLI launches.

This book explains how to prevent problems, troubleshoot and make repairs using safe techniques. It could also help you save money on expensive bills for yard work you could do yourself.

Diesels Afloat covers everything from how the diesel engine works to engine electrics, from fault finding to out of season lay-up. With this guide and your engine's manual you can be confident in dealing with any problem and get the best performance from your boat's engine.

The book also covers the syllabus of the RYA Diesel Engine and MCA Approved Engine Course 1 (AEC-1). This edition has been thoroughly updated by former course lecturer and currently chief engineer on merchant ships, Callum Smedley.

Pat Manley was a keen sailor and one of Practical Boat Owner magazine's team of experts, answering readers' questions. He is author of Fernhurst Book's Simple Boat Maintenance, Essential Boat Electrics, Electrics Companion, Diesel Companion and Practical Navigation. Callum Smedley has spent a lifetime at sea or teaching seafarers. He has worked for a range of shipping companies, including as chief engineer on diesel ships. He has also taught engineering and MCA classes at the North Atlantic Fisheries College.
