Synopses & Reviews
Here is an excellent overview of both power boating and sailing that focuses on the techniques shared by both. Solid material any boater will need to know on buying a boat and the cost of ownership, marine power and motors, technology and weather, safety, navigation, and boat handling—as well as expanded coverage on sailing and a brand new chapter on personal watercraft—this is the only boating book to own.
