The Boat Repair Bible: A Comprehensive Repair Guide for Power and Sail
by Compton, Nic, ed.
Compton explains how to repair the most common types of damage to hulls and decks (of fibreglass, wood, steel, and ferro-cement)–from leaks to the effects of serious impact. But that’s not all. You’ll find instruction on repairing standing and running rigging, deck fittings, hatches, steering gear-even heads and upholstery. The section on general mechanics covers damaged fuel/water tanks and leaking hydraulics, and the one on electrical repairs covers tracing loose connections, replacing damaged wiring, and fixing navigation instruments. There is also a comprehensive section on engine repair organized by specific problems.
