    Ralph, I once met Nigel Calder on an Island in the Pacific. He was famous for his "Boatowners Mechanical and Electrical book"
    Anyone going out on the ocean had a copy and his maintenance schedules,emergency repairs, and the sheer weight of the book was in use to balance the boat weight from side to side.
    He pretty much told me what you wrote >:)
