ALEXANDRIA, Va., August 7, 2012 – Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), has relaunched its extensive online “BoatTECH” resource at BoatUS.com/BoatTech, making it the largest, no-cost online archive in the country with hundreds of articles on boating technical, repair, maintenance, and other how-to resources for boaters, anglers, and sailors.

BoatTECH articles now cover, in-depth, the entire vast range of subjects for the practical do-it-yourselfer, including everything from how to add an inverter and use downriggers, to how to repair fiberglass and maintain boat trailers. From plumbing to polish, articles are enriched with more useful photos and up-to-date advice.

The site is easy to navigate, is being expanded continually, and boaters who are not BoatUS members are welcome to visit, search topics, follow chat narratives and learn from the authoritative articles written by the BoatUS Tech Team, including:

• Tom Neale, liveaboard expert and top technical editor who also provides exclusive navigation and chart updates for the American East Coast.

• Don Casey, best selling author of “do-it-yourself” books, including the DIY boaters’ bible, This Old Boat.

• John Adey, President of the boatbuilding standards organization, American Boat and Yacht Council, a technical expert who has owned a marine supply store and completely restored his classic 1976 Irwin ketch.
