Default Big-Block Chevy Marine Performance (book)

Looking for Big-Block Chevy Marine Performance (Paperback)
by Dennis Moore, amazon has some used ones for over $100.00, I looked on the back of the book, it retailed for $16.95, not into paying that kind of $$$ So if someone has one they want to let go for a reasonable price please PM me. Additionally if anyone has any other recommendations for learning more about marine motors please for let me know.

thanx

I know it's dodgy, but I borrowed a copy off a mate and scanned the whole thing, cover to cover!
I now have a rather large PDF copy of the book, but I find it very usefull to have electronically as well! One day I'll give the hard copy back too!! (I really need to!)
If I was entrepreneurial at all, I might think of putting it on CD and selling it, but out of respect for Dennis Moore, I would never do that.

I bought one a few yrs ago, skimmed through it once and never opened it again. In near mint condition, covers not even creased.
Make an offer.

I have a copy. The book doesn't get into real performance. It just covers basics and what you can do with stock parts which isn't much IMO. You can find a lot more info on line and right here on OSO.

That's kinda what I need, I'm just learning and I was told this is a good book to get a decent foundation.
