Sherman, ABYC instructor and curriculum director, released the second edition of “Outboard Engines: Maintenance, Troubleshooting and Repair.” It features full coverage of the new 4-strokes, conventional electronic and direct fuel-injection systems, oil-mix systems in the new clean 2-strokes, and more. It provides step-by-step directions for all common procedures, and covers every major brand of 2- and 4-stroke from 2 hp to 300 hp.

“The Boat Mechanical Systems Handbook,” by Gerr, Westlawn’s director, provides design and installation guidance for each major mechanical system. It includes guidelines and real-world interpretations of ABYC and European standards.
