Think of it as a shorter, mini-version of Chapman's landmark volume that's perfect for bringing on the boat.

Tides and currents, electronics, life on board, maintenance: it's all here, handily arranged for easy look-up. Numerous charts, tables, and line drawings amplify the text; thumb tabs make finding everything a snap; and a wealth of Internet addresses brings this up to the moment.
