I have great admiration for Nigel Calder and his Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual. I think he gets everything right, or very close.
For boat repair, I would consider the various West System manuals
, which have excellent illustrations. That doesn't cover all maintenance/repair issues, but they do a heck of a job.
Not sure about the diesel manual, other than the generally cryptic books
that come with the engine
