Chapman Practical Boat Handling: For every situation
By Gregory O. Jones with Dave Kelley

There are just two things that separate a novice boater from an expert knowledge and experience. In this illustrated guide, Chapman, the world's foremost nautical authority, presents a comprehensive collection of practical advice and indispensable strategies for boaters at all skill levels. This authoritative reference covers every aspect of power boating and sailing under engine power. Novice and intermediate boaters will appreciate the essential tips for getting a vessel launched, manoeuvring through a marina and into transit channels, and entering open water. Advanced boaters will learn the subtleties of engine trim and tabs, uncover the intricacies of reading navigation and weather charts, and find out how to compensate when moving between a single engine and twin engine craft. Plus, you'll find amusing and enlightening anecdotes from both experienced seamen and weekend sailors that describe how they handle actual boating challenges.

Special information is given for handling difficult or dangerous conditions, including thunderstorms, sustained high winds, and large waves. Surviving a collision and fire at sea are also covered.

In this one handy sourcebook, you'll find a complete course on the well-handled boat.
