Centred around clear annotated diagrams on a wealth of subjects, this invaluable visual reference makes it easy to explain what you need or what has broken! in nine different languages.

Topics covered:

  • Tides, navigation and weather
  • Parts of an engine, including outboards
  • Water, gas, electrical and steering systems
