Ex-library book, but still in great condition. Huge book with laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Pages clean and all intact, light soiling bottom edge of pages. Jacket has some scuffing and light creasing. 928 pages. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 928 pages; This new edition of the classic reference used by boating schools and recommended by the Coast Guard Auxiliary covers every imaginable topic related to both powerboats and sailing ships, from emergency procedures and international signals at sea, to weather conditions, knots, navigation and much more. This heavy dose of information is presented in an easy-to-understand text and a user-friendly design that features sidebars, color and b&w illustrations, maps, etc. While the scope of the book may be more than a casual boater needs, the author assumes many readers are novices. For example, he says, "Among the most important of all piloting tools are ordinary pencils and erasers. Pencils should be neither too hard nor too soft ." More experienced sailors might know this, but a weekend boater may not think to bring one on board. The section on motors provides color photographs with labels designating each part. Appendix material includes a listing of such useful information as state registration offices, boating organizations and marine safety offices. (*Note: due to very heavy weight - over 8 lbs wrapped - there will be extra shipping charges) [3.36]
