Diesel Troubleshooting By The Pictures—It's Never Been This Easy Before. This simple, hands-on guide to practical diesel engine care makes repair and maintenance more user-firendly than ever before. Now, even boatowners who grew up with gas engines can set aside theirs fears about tinkering with diesels.

Peter Compton's dream of bluewater cruising finally became reality when, after 20 years in the Aerospace industry, he quit his job in 1986 to build a small catamaran and sail south with his family in search of sun and sand. Some 11 years and 20,000 miles later, the Comptons have settled in the British Virgin Islands. With a background in troubleshooting that includes several years as Engineering Department Head analyzing complex system designs, Peter now applies these skills to the marine diesels he deals with every day. Peter's current project is an independent and informative website that covers every aspect of marine diesels. Visit it at www.boatdiesel.com.
