flo617 Thanks for your advices. I already had Spurr's book given by a friend but Casey's book looks really neat and I just ordered it. I'll take a look at the other ones too if possible.

I am a little paranoid and a bit of a hypochondriac. Having a boat as an additionnal body to worry about might not have been the wisest choice .

carl762 You'll want this book too:

... Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual: How to Maintain, Repair, and Improve Your Boat's Essential Systems (9780071432382): Nigel Calder: Books.

It's at Amazon for $32.97 and is an excellent resource. I own all the books mentioned in this thread.

Here's my candid question:

Is there any one experienced at the marina looking for helping hands during the week-end? I could learn from you and get to see the guts of your boat. That would help me with gaining understanding of mine. In exchange you could take a look at mine and help me find the areas that need to be addressed and give me a few tips on that.

Thanks,

Good luck with your efforts. You might also find Don Casey's book "This Old Boat" a very useful addition to your library and learning curve.

FWIW...

MarkSF Just a thought, but how about a book (as well as what you're suggesting, not instead) :

http://www.amazon.com/Caseys-Complet.../dp/0071462848

I'm only suggesting it as it's helped me a lot already.
