Sailors' Secrets, Advice From the Masters
With pithy, often iconoclastic advice on all aspects of seamanship and boat maintenance, Badham and Robinson have distilled in this book the seagoing experience of hundreds of the world's sailing experts. The result is the nautical equivalent of an experts' forum, including instructive and sometimes humorous and sometimes biting advice on: boat maintenance; understanding weather; safety at sea and storm strategies; gear and outfitting; sailing well; piloting; engine troubleshooting; simple solutions to complex problems. From Meade Gougeon on maintaing your boat to Buddy Melges on sailing it well, Walter Greene on taking it to sea, and Steve Callahan on coming home again, the insights shared here were developed over millions of sea miles.
