'Another cracking diesel engine episode from Nigel Calder that's worth its weight in gold... a practical, understandable journal for the everyday boater... a marvellous book full of diesel engine wisdom.' -- Boat Mart, April 2007

'Calder's latest offering, like its predecessors, will be another 'bible' for thousands of do-it-yourself boat owners.' -- Sailing, June 2007

I was expecting to have a few more illustrations, notwithstanding that its a good book if you are new to diesel engines. Covers a wide range from basic to expert

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Quite a nice well written book, but felt a little bit thin on good hard info regarding used engines, and a bit biased towards what you "should" come across rather than highlighting known problems with common engines as they get older and how to fix them. A bit too theoretical, and not hands on enough.
