9780071361354: Boatowner's Handbook: Reference Data for Maintenance, Repair, Navigation, and Seamanship

This quick-reference guide is an on-board data bank, compiling in one place all the facts, figures, tables, and graphs boat operators need. In 17 chapters ranging from deck gear to electronics to rigging and fuel calculations, it groups information logically for both power- and sailboat owners.

The amount of data a boat owner needs within fingertips reach can be staggering: recommended anchor sizes and types, cleat sizes for specified lines, fender sizes, GPS accuracy, VHF radio ranges, electrical power consumption, propeller pitch and diameter, and multitudinous other arcana. Boatowner's Handbook puts all this information in one place, boils it down to its most accessible form, and makes it easy to retrieve.

From the Back Cover:

"An excellent addition to any sailor's library."ญญSailing

This quick-reference guide is an on-board data bank, compiling all the thousands of facts, figures, tables, and graphs boat operators need. Practical, easy-to-find timesaving tips and golden rules provide information on everything from buying paint and adhesives, drilling pilot holes, showing navigation lights, and rigging a boat to provisioning for a cruise, sizing a propeller or oars, and choosing a dinghy.

Recommended anchor sizes and types, GPS accuracy, VHF radio ranges, electrical power consumption, cleat sizes--the immense amount of data any power- or sailboat owner requires is right here. This is the boat owner's portable memory and database.
