The Boating Book
Using case historians and anecdotes from his own experience told in easy, personal terms, John Roberts offers the reader the wide range of information and practical instruction needed to enjoy his or her boat safely. He takes us down to our boats, out onto the water and back to land - even out onto the road with our trailers - to teach us how to use our boats properly. The twenty-nine chapters cover such subjects as understanding your boat, preparing to get under way, close-quarter manoeuvring, docking, anchoring, mooring, using the jetty, rules of the road, basic piloting, boat maintenance and anticipating, handling and avoiding problems. This illustrated book will be indispensable to both new and experienced owners of any size of pleasure boat, power or sail.
