From United Kingdom to U. Introduction to Marine Engineering — D. Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines has served seagoing engineers, students of the Certificates of Competency examinations and the marine engineering industry throughout the world. Remains of date stamp page to ffep plus Ref. For this reason, any mechanic should focus on purchasing those reference books that are most related to his or her specialty.
We expect that you will understand our compulsion in these books. He is currently technical editor of Seatrade, a contributing editor to Speed at Sea, Shipping World and Shipbuilder and a technical press consultant to Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine. Let us know and we will add it here. Heavy equipment, such as construction equipment, large commercial and mining equipment, have quite different maintenance and repair requirements when compared to regular commercial diesel engines. Whether you are a weekend boater or a long-distance sailor you must be able to maintain and repair your marine engine and make running repairs when on the water.
