Comments about Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual, Third Edition:
I've used several other boat system references, but I'm constantly amazed at how well Calder covers the key issues, some of which are not generally understood. He gets the point across with very readable, understandable text and numerous well-chosen and inciteful illustrations, photos, and diagrams. This is in the "must have" category for recreational boat owners.
