Owning a boat requires sailors to develop a whole new skill set and take on a raft of new responsibilities, but this essential handbook takes the stress out of what should be an enjoyable, rewarding next step, and shares a wealth of practical advice on what might initially seem daunting new challenges.

Drawn from more than thirty-five years of the author's own experiences, this book is packed with expert wisdom and hand-holding guidance on every aspect of owning, equipping, maintaining, sailing, and--of course--enjoying your first boat.

Topics covered include: choice of boat; insurance; assessing (and costing) moorings and berths; navigation and safety equipment; domestic equipment (galley, bedding, clothing, etc); navigation (including in fog); manuevering in close spaces; sources of weather information and forecasts; responsibilities towards crew; catering and cooking; maintenance advice (daily tips, winterizing, engine servicing, fitting out for spring, etc.); paperwork (including customs forms); dealing with emergencies; and more.

Filled with color photos and diagrams throughout, this comprehensive guide is indispensable for new skippers who have learned to sail at a sailing school or on a friend's boat and are ready to take the next step.
This book is a companion to Reeds Vol. 6: Basic Electrotechnology for Marine Engineers and covers aspects of theory beyond the scope of Volume 6. The book will cover the more advanced topics in electrotechnology for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the syllabi in electrotechnology for undergraduates studying for BSc, BEng and MEng degrees in marine engineering and electrical engineering.

The new edition will provide worked examples and test exam questions, corresponding to current Merchant Navy Qualifications. Other revisions will include new material on emerging technology areas such as image intensifiers (photoelectric effect, secondary emission), thermal imaging cameras, radar, increased maritime use of LEDs, various semiconductor physics devices including the laser, as well as discussions of binary or digital theory. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-vol-7-advanced-electrotechnology-for-marine-engineers-9781408176030/#sthash.DUxKMy9A.dpuf

The book covers the principal topics in applied mechanics for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the core syllabi in applied mechanics for undergraduates studying for BSc, BEng and MEng degrees in marine engineering, naval architecture and other marine technology related programmes.

The revised version takes into account the need of these students, recognising recent changes to the Merchant Navy syllabus and current pathways to a sea-going engineering career, including National diplomas, Higher National Diploma and degree courses.

Basic principles are dealt with, beginning at a fairly elemental stage, with this new edition applying the underlying principles to a shipping environment. Each chapter has fully worked examples interwoven into the text, with test examples set at the end of each chapter. Other revisions include examples reflecting modern machines and practice, current legislation and current syllabi. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-vol-2-applied-mechanics-for-marine-engineers-9781472910561/#sthash.VYyxXnAO.dpuf
