Most sailing vessels and motorboats have a marine diesel engine. This book will help the owner keep this vital piece of equipment going. It covers; how it works, fuel, air, cooling, lubrication, electrics, installation and winter lay up.
This second edition is fully revised and now covers turbochargers and long--distance voyaging (very demanding on engines).
Don Seddon is both an engineer and a sailor. This makes him uniquely qualified to write this book.
