Synopsis:

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.

From the Back Cover:

Discover the intricate workings of sailboats and powerboats from ground tackle to propulsion gear--and everything in between!

Whether you're a new mariner or a lifetime veteran, How Boat Things Work is a resource you can't afford to be without. With intricate two-color cutaway drawings of eighty different systems and devices, as well as detailed explanations of how they're assembled, how they work, and how they can go wrong, this book covers every primary component of your boat's inner workings. Systems explored include:

  • Engines, transmissions, bearings, stuffing boxes, propellers
  • Steering systems, autopilots, windvanes, compasses
  • Rigging, splicing, line handling, block and tackle, sail controls
  • Anchors and windlasses
  • DC and AC electrical systems
  • Pumps, toilets, seacocks, freshwater systems

This introduction to the secret lives of boats is also the ideal complement to your troubleshooting and repair manuals and instructions. How Boat Things Work will be a welcome companion on every voyage you take.
