From the Back Cover:

Boating knowledge has never been this easy to acquire, at home or on the water.

The elements of seamanship are in your hands. In this handy little volume, Roger Siminoff shares the wisdom and practical experience he's earned the hard way--from years on the water.

How sharply you skipper your vessel and react to your fellow boater--staying keenly alert to your vessel and your surroundings--are all key to success, fun, and safety on the water.

More than 100 savvy tips and short essays on boating and seamanship distill Siminoff's hands-on boating knowledge into a compact, time-saving format. Every boater--power or sail, beginner or experienced--can benefit from his practical advice on

  • Safety aboard and rescue drills
  • Anchoring and docking
  • Boating at night and in heavy weather
  • Rules of the Road
  • Navigation demsytified
  • Maintenance dos and don'ts
  • VHF radio protocol and channels

and much more. Generously illustrated, packed with tips and anecdotes, this guide is also a delight to read, sure to be well-thumbed by every boater lucky enough to have it.
