The Adlard Coles Book of Diesel Engines is aimed at boatowners rather than experienced mechanics. In clear, jargon-free English it explains how a diesel engine works, how to look after it, and takes into account developments in engine technology. The book explains how the engine uses simple processes to covert fuel to power, and then looks at the various sub-systems that allow those processes to take place. She also advises on tools, winterizing and provides hints, tips and helpful fault-finding tables. Systems covered include: fuel, air, cooling, oil, electrical, propeller and transmission and control. This fifth edition has been thoroughly updated and illustrated with new full-colour photos and diagrams. In particular the Common Rail Injection System is covered, which governs how the fuel system is constructed, combined with the use of electronics (as opposed to mechanics) to control it thereby meeting the need for cleaner, greener engines to meet emissions regulations.

The Adlard Coles Book of Navigation is aimed at anyone with an interest in navigating small craft, but particularly at those working towards RYA Day Skipper, Yachtmaster, Motor Cruising or Advanced Powerboat certificates, or attending the RYA Radar course.

Using plain English to strip away the jargon, this book sets out to demystify the technology behind modern marine electronics, and to explain how the various systems work and how to get the best out of the equipment available. The Adlard Coles Book of Electronic Navigation is set to become the definitive book on the subject.

Nigel Calder, a diesel mechanic for more than 25 years, is also a boatbuilder, cabinetmaker, and machinist. He and his wife built their own cruising sailboat, Nada, a project they completed in 1984. Calder is author of numerous articles for Yachting Monthly and many other magazines worldwide, as well as the bestselling Boatowner's Practical and Technical Cruising Manual and Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual, both published by Adlard Coles Nautical. Here, in this goldmine of a book, is everything the reader needs to keep their diesel engine running cleanly and efficiently. It explains how diesel engines work, defines new terms, and lifts the veil of mystery that surrounds such engines. Clear and logical, this extensively illustrated guide will enable the reader to be their own diesel mechanic. As Nigel Calder says: 'there is no reason for a boatowner not to have a troublefree relationship with a diesel engine. All one needs is to set the engine up correctly in the first place, to pay attention to routine maintenance, to have the knowledge to spot early warning signs of impending trouble, and to have the ability to correct small ones before they become large ones.'

Long before he was one of America's leading yachting writers, Nigel Calder was a novice cruiser with ambitions grander than his experience. Nigel and his partner Terrie were young and foolish, with a home-built boat that was new and untested, one child already and another on the way - but they were determined to complete an adventurous 18-month voyage from New Orleans to Venezuela and back. It was the voyage that made Calder the yachtsman he is today, a marvellous romp through the West Indies, seeing an unspoilt Caribbean, while learning hard-won lessons from direct experience - troubleshooting engines, kedging off shoals and reefs, and most importantly navigating Nada, a yacht that quickly became very much part of the burgeoning Calder family too. An adventure story and a colourful travelogue in one, Shakedown Cruise is a must-read for all who are curious about what it takes to become a cruising sailor or create an adventurous life, as well as those who are just looking to sail along with Nigel and his family.

Since this book was written over 30 years ago by the great British sailor K. Adlard Coles, it has become the standard work on seamanship under gale conditions. More than 100,000 English-language copies have been printed, and there are editions in French, German, Dutch, Italian, Swedish, and Spanish. The thirtieth-anniversary edition of this classic includes sections on parachute sea anchors and drogues, crew fitness, and management advice, and new material on meteorology and on seasick remedies. Ample advice from great sailors such as Oiln Stephens, Robin Knox-Johnston, and Val Haigh is augmented by new material by Dag Pike and Mike Golding. Also new in this edition is a section on multihulls in heavy weather.Part 1 provides expert advice for crews of any vessel that ventures out of sight of land, whether for racing or cruising. It gives a clear message of seamanlike design features, preparations, and tactics that should be considered against the time when it comes on to blow. Part 2 offers hair-raising accounts of sail and power yachts overtaken by heavy weather. New in this edition are accounts of the 1998 Sydney - Hobart disaster, the 1994 "Queen's Birthday" storm off New Zealand, as well as other storm stories from the world's oceans. No one who goes to sea in his or her own craft can afford to ignore the advice in Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing. Dramatic black-and-white photos of storm seas combine with 60 new color shots throughout the book.
