This book is of great use to both new and existing boat owners with an easy to follow guide on examining all important aspects of a boat, includes safety equipment and dinghies.

Boats are expensive and complicated, and it is invaluable to be able to assess their condition, whether buying a new boat or maintaining your own. It explains the techniques of examination used by professionals and allows you to get to know your boat in detail. This will help in identifying problems before they become too serious or show that it is necessary to get a second opinion.

Chapters cover each part of the boat, from the hull, deck, and mast to engines, plumbing, and electrics. With hundreds of clear, detailed photos and diagrams, hands-on advice and handy checklists, this book is a must-have for all owners, would-be owners, and anyone in charge of a vessel.
