REVIEWS One way folks plan to get cruising sooner is to cut costs by moving on board their boat early. Before you do, read this well balanced look at the subject. You'll encounter fewer surprises.- Lin Pardey, Author, Educator and World Cruiser Read this book if you've ever been gripped by the romantic idea of living on water. Mark Nicholas presents a rich mine of information for potential liveaboards, information he gleaned the hard way. As a self-confessed "expert at what can go wrong," who better than Mark to pass on the solid advice you need? - John Vigor, Author If you dream of living aboard, read this book. It's straight talk from a liveaboard sailor who made the mistakes so you won't have to. And you won't find a more comprehensive look at the liveaboard lifestyle.- Linda Ridihalgh, Editor, Living Aboard Magazine If you have been thinking about living aboard, there is help! Here is a book that will give you a lot of little insights into what you will be gaining, and what you will be losing. The book is intended as a resource to help you learn about the liveaboard lifestyle. It tells you about costs and options and attempts to provide an honest and realistic picture of what it's like to live aboard. - Bob Bitchin, Editor, Latitudes and Attitudes (Dec. '04) This is a must book for anyone contemplating "living aboard". Mark doesn't pull any punches. We see the good, the bad, the ugly, and the "dream". Armed with this book one could enjoy the liveaboard lifestyle without any worriesome surprises.- Tom Cox, Marina Owner, Liveaboard and Board Member - Marina Owners of America I've been living aboard my sailboat since 1997, and I've read many books about the liveaboard lifestyle. Mark Nicholas' 'The Essentials of Living Aboard' is not only accurate and well-written, but it contains helpful cost projections that I haven't seen elsewhere. This is the first book I'd recommend to anyone who is thinking about the liveaboard lifestyle! - Robert Doty, Liveaboard Webmaster (www.sleepingwithoars.com) A seasoned and experienced sailor, Mark Nicholas has written an ideal introduction for anyone aspiring to enjoy life aboard any kind of boat ... The reader will learn how to choose and buy a boat that is appropriate for one's needs, including the finesse of the buying process, negotiations, insurance, and financing, amenities aboard a boat, navigation and safety matters, sanitation issues, legal issues, tips, tricks, and techniques, and more. Of special interest are the warnings about search, seizure, and forfeiture ... An absolute "must-have" for anyone considering making a boat one's permanent dwelling.- Midwest Book Review - October 2004 As a lifelong boater, and one with Joanne, my wife of 48 years, we begin our second decade of living on board a boat. I feel Mark Nicholas has done extensive study in gaining a worldwide appreciation and understanding of what it takes, not only to buy a boat and maintain it, but what one can expect within that lifestyle.... the challenges, adjustments, financial expectations as well as the joys inherent in this experience. Mark has probably done the most complete investigation and reporting of any we know of. Maybe living aboard is not for everyone, but you are not signing your life away, even if you just want to enjoy it for a limited time. There is just no comparison to sitting within 4 walls when one considers either cruising in open waters, or just sitting idly by on the deck or cockpit, with open breezes and the sun warming your back, listening to the birds, slap of the water on the hull, or other activities around you. This even works when rain is gently falling beyond. There are also those challenges with weather...you against the elements. You are both above and within nature at its best. God surely meant it to be that way.- Don Stonehill, Chairman, Liveaboard Assn of Puget Sound
* Outboard motor repair for the average guy *

 

Fix up an old outboard and SAVE $1000 or more compared to buying a new motor!

With a little know-how and a few common tools, you can fix an old motor—bring it back from the dead.  Sometimes all it takes is a squirt of WD-40 into the cylinder and a new spark plug. Or a new set of points and condensers—which do not require expert knowledge or black magic to install. Maybe the carburetor needs cleaning and adjusting. You can do it!

Max E. Wawrzyniak III is an outboard motor guru. He advises you to find an old motor at a yard sale for $100 or so (and he tells you exactly which ones to look for), and fix it up—rather than spending $1500 or more on a new motor. He is a big fan of “cheap power.” Get on the water with money left in your pocket.

With a basic understanding of how these motors work, a little logical thinking, and a few hours’ work, you can go boating for a fraction of what everyone else has to pay. Also—for the boater who already owns an outboard motor of any age—this book demystifies these internal-combustion marvels that can bring such frustration if they malfunction. You’ll learn how they work, and the simple things you can do to keep them running forever.


What Max teaches are not only money-saving skills, but can also be life-saving, as you will no longer be helpless in the face of engine trouble on the water. His clear instructions and over one hundred color photographs will make anyone into a capable outboard mechanic.

INCLUDES: What to Buy, Where to Find It, Tools Needed and Where to Begin, The Ignition System, Carburetors, Water Pump Repairs, Recoil Starters, Fuel Tanks, Propellors, Lower Units, Emergency Shut-Down, Fuel Pump Conversion, Remote Controls: Shift and Throttle, Remote Control: Steering, Tiller Conversion, Trouble-Shooting, and Onboard Spares and Tools.     


This book has always been very popular and well-used in its print edition. Now it's available as an e-book so you can load it into your phone or tablet and always have this wealth of repair / maintenance information at your fingertips, even when out on your boat.
