Where to buy it


While we pay close attention to the environmental impact of our cars, we don't notice how boats can significantly pollute and contaminate our waters and shorelines. Whether it's for recreation or work, your boat need not be an environmental hazard. In this book, part of the Self-Counsel Green series, you are guided through safe, affordable practices to ensure your vessel is sustainable and environmentally efficient and how you can properly handle and even find alternatives for the many chemicals and solvents for its upkeep.
