Max Wawrzyniak is an outboard motor guru. He advocates finding an old motor at a yard sale for $50 and fixing it up, rather than spending $1500 on a new motor. Sometimes the “secret” to getting a perfectly running motor from a lifeless hulk is as simple as a new sparkplug and a squirt of WD-40 into the cylinder. What he teaches is not only a money-saving skill, but can also be life-saving, as the boater will no longer be helpless in the face of engine failure at sea. Max’s clear instructions and detailed photographs will make anyone into a mechanic.
