    So for many years i have kept marines and read many great books, this book by Martin Moe Jr was rated as one of the best, so i got a copy and so far very good, i will review each chapter as i go along.

    But from the first few pages, foreward and introduction , it looks to be very good even using some retro ideas for filtration etc...

    The problem I find with marine books is there longevity because techniques and ideas become wrong/out dated rapidly in this developing hobby.
