    SIMPLE SOLUTIONS.
    By Alan Lucas, 0.68kg, 150mm x 240`mm, 307 pages, Black & White Photographs & Line Drawings. Published 2015.

    307 pages of amazing ideas, with a a total of 104 different subjects including such things as scarfing,splining, steerig, gland packing, pipe tools, dinghy dilemmas, sealants, creative cleats, mildew and unwelcome visitors.

    This book is a product of many decades afloat during which many nautical problems have been overcome, either tempoararily or permanently, in mid ocean or at isolated anchorages. Also, in the midst of normal maintenannce and refitting, a variety of simple ideas on how to enhance life aboard have been turned into reality with the simplest of materials.

    Much of the material in this book has appeared in one magazine or another since the early 1960's, either from Alan Lucas himself or via other sailors, making this, in essence, a compilation volume. Despite this, (or because of it), Simle Solutions is the ideal book of book of hints, tips, ideas, suggestions and solutions to some of the everyday problems encountered afloat as experienced (and remedied) by sailors themselves.

    HOW BOAT THINGS WORK, An Illustrated Guide.
    By Charlie Wing, Paperback, 215mm x 275mm, 175 pages, two colour drawings.
    For Sail or Power Boat, this is certainly an illustrated guide. With intricate two-colour cutaway drawings of eighty different systems and devices, as well as detailed explanations of how they are assembled, how they work and how they can go wrong. If you have a Yanmar 2GM this would certainly be of help as it is the engine he has chosen to use for the engine illustrations.
    This book would be a great compliment to other engineering books you may have in your library that may not have many illustrations. While it is not a very big book in page numbers it is big in content.
