“Quite simply the best book I’ve ever read on ‘how to’. Why? Because it could not be more simply laid out. Every problem is broken down into very short categories: Why it needs to be done; When it should be done; Tools needed; Where to find it. Then follows a step-by-step guide on the task.” Yachting Monthly

“This is the best-illustrated book ever produced on maintenance. Using very clear graphics and photographs, common maintenance tasks are broken down into simple step-by-step instructions. Even those that claim to have two left thumbs would be able to use this guide.” Peter Chennell, Sea Safety Manager, RNLI Offshore News
