Additional Info


Dennison Berwick's Marine Diesel Basics #1 may remind some of the classic VW repair book How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive by John Muir from over 40 years ago. Dennison's illustrations are a bit more disciplined, but it is indeed the complete illustrated diesel system, with hundreds and hundreds of drawings. It covers maintenance, lay-up, winter protection, tropical storage, and Spring recommissioning.

Berwick has done a bit more traveling than most... he walked across India, paddled a small canoe in the Amazon for five years, sailed Europe, the Great Lakes, North Atlantic, sub-Arctic Labrador, as well as South-East Asia. The book was the outcome of his need for self reliance on diesel motors.
