If you’re as passionate about your boat as I am then you’ll want to read all of this letter because I want to answer your marine diesel engine repair questions and help you solve your marine diesel engine problems.
Whether you are a weekend boater or a long-distance sailor you must be able to maintain and repair your marine engine and make running repairs when on the water. Lack of engine knowledge can lead to disaster!
So, if you want to understand your marine diesel engine … then please keep reading.
Here’s why …
A couple of years ago I met shipwright Laurence Burgin when he was doing some work on my boat. (By the way, that’s my power catamaran “SeaChange” at left.) Laurence is a shipwright with more than 20 years experience on a wide variety of vessels. He also teaches marine diesel engine maintenance for beginners at Franklin Marine in Tasmania.
I attended one of Laurence’s marine diesel engine maintenance courses and the knowledge I gained has enabled me to do much of the regular engine maintenance on my boat myself. I still get the service guy from the engine manufacturer to do some of the more complex maintenance but with what I can now do myself I’ve saved thousands of dollars.
More importantly, I have confidence that I can handle a marine engine emergency out on the water!
“At Last! All the information you need to begin MAINTAINING AND REPAIRING YOUR OWN MARINE DIESEL ENGINE has been assembled into one book!”
Laurence has now decided to make his marine engine manual available to the wider boating community in the form of a downloadable e-book. So, whether you want to do your own engine maintenance or just want to have a better understanding of how your marine engine works for your own safety then this book is for you.
This is not just a “What To Do” book … it’s a “How To Do It” Book!
It doesn’t matter what sort of marine diesel engine your vessel has – Volvo Penta, Yanmar, Perkins, Cummins, or any other – I know you’ll find this marine engine workshop manual invaluable.
Now, whether you’re a weekend sailor, or planning your own circumnavigation, this book is an investment in your boating safety.
