A look inside the mysterious machines that power, steer, and control sailboats and powerboats A fully illustrated tour of a boat's mysterious machines and gizmos, this beautifully detailed guide features more than 100 cutaway and exploded drawings to give readers a glimpse into the inner workings of both powerboats and sailboats, including engines and propulsion gear, steering, rigging, ground tackle, electronic gear, electrical systems, and plumbing. Eighty principal devices and systems are covered, each in a two-page spread complete with simple explanations of parts, tips for disassembly and assembly, and instructions for troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair. Ideal for do-it-yourselfers, this is an essential onboard resource that even the mechanically impaired can appreciate.
