The Motor Boat Manual
Buying, using, maintaining and repairing motor boats
Av Dennis Watts
Packed with practical information and handy tips, with over 500 colour images, the Motor Boat Manual is the ideal guide for new and existing motor boat owners.
Owning your own boat may seem expensive but costs can be minimised and the dream of ownership can be achieved with the Motor Boat Manual. Written to cut through confusing nautical language, it gives anyone new to boating the confidence and knowledge to buy, enjoy and maintain a small to medium sized motor cruiser, open launch, sports or speed boat, sea angling boat, rigid inflatable or an inflatable boat with outboard motor.
It's now much easier to find boat bargains with boat-selling websites and plenty of magazines. The Motor Boat Manual gives you advice and tips for choosing, buying and selling a wide range of new and used boats - from small open boats to motor cruisers with cabin accommodation, and list all the useful contacts.
You don't have to be a shipwright to tackle many straightforward maintenance and improvement tasks and the Motor Boat Manual shows you how with clear step-by-step details. The aim here is to achieve ownership and enjoy boating without great expense.
Once you have your boat, you can explore inland waterways, estuaries and creeks or visit remote islands, find secluded beaches and learn to cruise the coast. The Motor Boat Manual covers all the information you'll need to get started and enjoy the whole boating experience.
