Product Information

Any boat owner wants to look after their craft as best they can but how should this be tackled? How much maintenance is too much, and conversely too little? How can I prevent a problem rather than cure it? How do I know whether what I’m doing is correct?
Help is at hand. RYA Boat Maintenance Handbook is the ideal maintenance and repair guide that boaters will find indispensable for all routine maintenance jobs on and off the water, both above and below decks, inside and outside the hull.
This essential new book from boat maintenance guru Andrew Simpson provides the answers that you are looking for. The comprehensive scope is accompanied by colour illustrations, photographs and unrivalled expert advice on how to care for all of your boat’s fixtures and fittings, helping you tackle any task with complete confidence.
It identifies the areas that you need to maintain and explains how to do it in a very logical way, creating a surprisingly accessible and readable boat maintenance handbook. While the focus is on moulded reinforced plastic boats, many of the topics are common to all modern leisure craft.
Top tips and advice along with extensive appendices expand on the depth of valuable knowledge for some key areas throughout the book.
