A wealth of practical information that will assist owners in the maintenance and repair of sailing and motor vessels .

This website presents detailed information on many subjects that confuse and annoy yacht owners. We have tried to present logical and informed studies of many of them. We are indebted to the many people who have supplied information and photographs to augment our words. The site is owned and run by the father and son team of Vyv and Owen Cox.

TO CLARIFY – WE DO NOT BUY OR SELL ANY PRODUCTS, EQUIPMENT OR SERVICES. WE PROVIDE INFORMATION AND ADVICE FREE OF CHARGE TO BOAT OWNERS.

We are pleased to receive e-mail queries, photographs or comments on any technical aspects of yachting. See our contact page for details.
We also offer a consultancy service for engineering failure diagnosis, in which we can conduct analysis and act on your behalf in discussions with manufacturers, contractors and boatyards.

Looking for an interesting and different speaker for your yacht club’s winter programme? Technical topics presented in a personal and entertaining style are a specialty, enjoyed by several clubs and associations over the recent past.
