Synopsis:

An unparalleled opportunity to learn the basics of good seamanship from the United States' ultimate boating authority

This book offers recreational boaters a rare opportunity to benefit from the highest standards of seamanship evolved by the U.S. Coast Guard over the course of its long and storied history. Available to the public for the first time, it contains the Coast Guard's approved methods and procedures for every aspect of navigation, seamanship, and handling all boats under power, including auxiliary sailboats­­the same practices taught to all Coast Guard boat crews and coxswains. This handsome trade edition contains all the same information found in the Coast Guard's official loose-leaf training guide, reorganized and redesigned for ease of reference and aesthetic appeal. In addition to providing comprehensive coverage of all the basics of good seamanship, it provides readers with an unprecedented glimpse at accepted Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary procedures for dealing with extreme situations, including conducting search and rescue missions; towing; fire fighting; controlling vessel flooding; righting capsized boats; conducting air operations; handling boats in surf; and more.
