THE Essential Guide for All Boaters!

With millions of copies sold, Chapman Piloting has been the leading reference for both power and sail boaters for nearly 100 years. Now this absolutely essential guide—large and beautifully produced, with 928 pages, 1,500 full-color illustrations and charts, and exploded views and cutaways—is thoroughly updated with all the latest information on federal laws, regulations, and fees. In fact, NO competing book is more current. Chapman even covers the newest technology—especially in the area of communications and navigation electronics equipment, such as GPS, radar, depth sounders/fish finders, chart plotters, and other gear. Even the illustrations—photos, sketches, chart plots—have been freshened up and improved, as has all the contact information, from postal and e-mail addresses to websites.

Virtually anyone who puts a craft on water needs this vital

information about boating rules, weather, tide, currents,

and navigation. Here are all the facts about seamanship for powerboats, small craft, and boats under sail; anchoring,

communications, and navigation; inland boating, marlinespike seamanship, and boating customs. Decade after decade, Chapman is the book that boaters reach for.

 

Chapman's is:

* The standard text for private boating schools throughout the U.S.

* The officially recommended book for the U.S. Coast Guard's boating education classes

* The guide chosen by the United States Power Squadrons
