This book is novel in that it covers a wide variety of topics, including mechanical, electrical, communication and maintenance information. It is not just another do-it-yourself text, although it includes some DIY projects. Its purpose is to stimulate, inform and assist boat owners who have an interest in technology and the hands-on aspect of operating, maintaining and improving their boats. The book offers details on improvement projects, including the correct tools to use and hints to make the job easier and safer. There are also several chapters on the fine art of maintenance and some suggestions for innovative tools and methods to help take the mess and drudgery out of the tasks. Even though not every reader will own a diesel engine, install a hatch, rework an electrical system or need to customise their instrument panel, they will still find valuable information in every chapter. This is a potpourri of practical knowledge that will lead to a better understanding of boats in general - knowledge that can be applied in a wide range of situations, help solve a multitude of problems and enhance their boating experience. The chapters are grouped by a tenuous commonality, but the book is meant to be browsed at the whim of the reader. Enjoy! And remember, the best things in life are afloat.
