Andy,
Good for you. What great enthusiasm you have.
This is the Nigel Caulder book you want:
Amazon.com: Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical Manual: How to Maintain, Repair, and Improve Your Boat's Essential Systems (9780070096189): Nigel Calder: Books Amazon.com: Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical Manual: How to Maintain, Repair, and Improve Your Boat's Essential Systems (9780070096189): Nigel Calder: Books


There is a ton of helpful information in it about diesel engines and electronics as well as basic stuff. Should help you save a ton of money if you are at all handy.
Is your IP31 the center board version or just the plain keel?
What engine is in your boat?

How to make a small fortune.
Start with a large fortune and buy a boat.

Welcome to sailnut.
