Fishing Boats and Their Equipment by Dag Pike [used-very good]

The first edition of this book achieves its aim of helping fishermen choose the most suitable design, construction and equipment for fishing boats up to 70 feet. Because of recent developments it has been re-issued with an enlarged chapter on electronics and navigation equipment. It examines such things as various hull shapes, construction materials, engines and gearboxes and their location, together with cool and fuel systems, electrical and auxiliary systems including hydraulics, stern gear, deck machinery, steering systems, and ropes, maintenance and other matters involved in operating a small fishing boat.
