I need to learn about maintenance..
OK.....time to confess: I'm completely ignorant about 'things wot make boats work'.
I know my boat has an engine; I know where to put fuel and oil and how to flush the head after use and how to fill the fridge with beer.
However I know bugger all about engines apart from the fact that I need one and it needs maintaining.....which is why I pay people who know how to do it properly, to do so.
Can anyone suggest a decent place to start in terms of learning the basics?
Is there a Haynes Manual for boats?
Should I do local evening class on diesel engine maintenance?
Answers on a postcard please.
oops.....is the water supposed to be coming in there?
