British publishing house Haynes is the world’s largest publisher of maintenance and repair manuals. The Haynes Owners Workshop Manuals have been published since the 1950s. They describe in detail and well illustrated technical interventions on cars and motorcycles.
In the same style Haynes is also publishing “manuals” about airplanes boats and spacecraft. These books are not intended to actually carry out repairs, but they do give a unique impression of the technology of the machines in question.
A boat is always described from the views of the the crew and the mechanic. Beautiful colour photos and technical drawings show the construction in detail.
