The two books
I would not want to be without:
- The shop manual for my engine(s) - make sure you get the real shop manual provided by the enigne manufacturer, not one of the aftermarket books
by Seloc etc. (or get both)
- The parts
catalog for my engine
- again made by the manufacturer. Allows you to look up the manufacturers part number for any part.
The other two books I refer to the most are:
- This Old Boat (Casey)
- Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical
But the internet
is better than either of these two books if you have it available. Not sure I would buy them at full price
, but for sure would keep my eyes out for a good deal on a used copy.
