This book is the powerboating equivalent to Heavy Weather Sailing - the classic and bestselling sailing reference on the Adlard Coles list. Like Heavy Weather Sailing, it features chapters on the theory of operating powerboats in rough seas as well as invaluable heavy weather experiences, and the lessons learned.

Topics include:

· Offshore endurance and record breaking

· Ocean voyaging

· Small boat adventuring

· Navigating tidal waters in bad weather

· Speed at sea

· Surf helming tactics

· Safety and recovery in rough seas

· Effects on the human body
