INTRODUCTION
There is a large gap between the information marine manufacturers provide in their manuals and the information mariners need to keep their boats motoring along. This book was written to fill the gap.I’ve been troubleshooting and repairing Kodiak fi shing boats since I worked for a diesel equipment company in Anchorage, Alaska,in 1980. Later I settled in Kodiak and opened a marine engine repair shop, where I also began receiving calls to repair motoryachts, pleasure boats, and sailboats. Soon after, I was asked to instruct night classes in marine engine repair at Kodiak College. The next twenty years found me in the company of these students, often mariners, who were wrestling with maintenance problems.I found the best approach to answering my students’ troubleshooting questions was through an ever-expanding collection of one page handouts. Each handout summarized a particular problem with marine equipment, then offered solutions. The summaries focused on the sights, sounds, sensations,smells, and tastes associated with mechanical problems.The handouts often spurred conversations in the class. My students would recount their own “war stories”real-life, hair-raising near misses. Most of their stories had happy endings, and the enthused students explained how they averted catastrophe and returned safely to port.These classroom discussions resulted in more topics that could be distilled into onepage summaries, but it didn’t stop there.Topics would arise outside the classroom as well. For instance, a former student might see me at the grocery store and say: “Hey, Ben,I’ve got a good one for you.” Then we might get a napkin from the deli and draw a diagram of the solution to a particular marine equipment problem.
