About the Author:

Nigel Warren is a professional naval architect. He has designed a variety of boats and is a regular contributor to the yachting press. He lives in the U.K.

Review:

In the never-ending war against rust and corrosion, knowledge of the enemy is the sailor s best defense, and Nigel Warren is the Sun Tzu of corrosion. His third edition of Metal Corrosion in Boats covers all aspects of this often perplexing subject on how to prevent or at last reduce the harmful effects of water hulls, engines, rigging and fittings. While great attention is given to the age-old problem of galvanic corrosion, this new edition delves deeper into the effects of electrolytic corrosion, fast becoming a greater concern as more boats are plugging in to shore power. Modern super sealants, copper sheathing and chromium plating are also examined. A useful reference tool for boat owners and builders alike, Warren s book contains helpful color illustrations, and clear informative diagrams and tables. (Sailing)

Writing for owners and builders of boats rather than scientists, naval architect Warren offers a broad account of the corrosion behavior of the common boatbuilding materials and the conditions in which they are likely to corrode too rapidly for comfort, and sometimes even for safety. An example of information that is arcane but need not be, is the effect of one metal on another when immersed in seawater. (Scitech Book News)
