MA­RINE DIESEL BA­SICS

SAIL - - Cruising Under Sail -

If you’re not me­chan­i­cally in­clined, even the sim­plest main­te­nance tasks on a diesel en­gine and its as­so­ci­ated para­pher­na­lia can be daunt­ing. There are plenty of books on the sub­ject, but many of them as­sume a cer­tain level of knowl­edge and oth­ers are poorly il­lus­trated. Den­ni­son Ber­wick lit­er­ally starts with the ba­sics and leads the reader through the process of un­der­stand­ing how en­gines and drive trains work, and what’s needed to keep them work­ing. Step-by-step in­struc­tions ac­com­pa­nied by ex­cel­lent draw­ings take you through win­ter­iz­ing and com­mis­sion­ing pro­ce­dures and much more. The best guide on the sub­ject I’ve seen, this book has a place on ev­ery diesel-equipped boat. — Peter Nielsen
