This manual takes both novice and experienced boatowner through minor to major repairs of electrical systems, engines, electronics, steering systems, generators, pumps, cookers, spars and rigging.

When it was first published in 1990, the Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical Manual broke new ground. It was hailed as the first truly DIY manual for boatowners and has sold in its thousands ever since. There have been significant changes in boat systems since then, particularly electrical systems, and this fourth edition has been fully updated to reflect these developments and expand its predecessor's worldwide popularity.

This book is a companion to Reeds Vol. 6: Basic Electrotechnology for Marine Engineers and covers aspects of theory beyond the scope of Volume 6. The book will cover the more advanced topics in electrotechnology for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the syllabi in electrotechnology for undergraduates studying for BSc, BEng and MEng degrees in marine engineering and electrical engineering.

The new edition will provide worked examples and test exam questions, corresponding to current Merchant Navy Qualifications. Other revisions will include new material on emerging technology areas such as image intensifiers (photoelectric effect, secondary emission), thermal imaging cameras, radar, increased maritime use of LEDs, various semiconductor physics devices including the laser, as well as discussions of binary or digital theory. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-vol-7-advanced-electrotechnology-for-marine-engineers-9781408176030/#sthash.DUxKMy9A.dpuf

The book covers the principal topics in applied mechanics for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the core syllabi in applied mechanics for undergraduates studying for BSc, BEng and MEng degrees in marine engineering, naval architecture and other marine technology related programmes.

The revised version takes into account the need of these students, recognising recent changes to the Merchant Navy syllabus and current pathways to a sea-going engineering career, including National diplomas, Higher National Diploma and degree courses.

Basic principles are dealt with, beginning at a fairly elemental stage, with this new edition applying the underlying principles to a shipping environment. Each chapter has fully worked examples interwoven into the text, with test examples set at the end of each chapter. Other revisions include examples reflecting modern machines and practice, current legislation and current syllabi. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-vol-2-applied-mechanics-for-marine-engineers-9781472910561/#sthash.VYyxXnAO.dpuf
