9780071398671: Radar for Mariners

Become an Expert Small-Craft Radar Operator

Nothing beats radar for guiding your boat through the darkest night or the thickest fog. Radar enables you to plot a fix from just a single buoy or landmark, and it is the only navigation tool that tells you not just where you are, but who else or what else is out there with you. Today’s smaller, affordable, more powerful radars make more sense than ever for sailors and powerboaters.

This complete, in-depth manual shows you how to:

  • Choose the best radar model for your sail- or powerboat
  • Install, adjust, and operate your system
  • Interpret the images on your radar screen
  • Pilot your boat and track the movements of vessels around you
  • Use radar to track and avoid squalls, to outmaneuver competitors in a yacht race, and for other specialized tasks
  • Interface your radar with a digital compass, GPS, or electronic chart

Radar for Mariners comes with a Radar Resources CD-ROM that includes a “field guide” to screen and target images, plotting sheets for printing, an e-book copy of the complete Navigation Rules, sample radar manuals, and more. It also includes a free trial version (30-day period) of the Starpath Radar Trainer simulator, plus an encrypted copy of the Full Radar Trainer you can purchase at a discount nearly equal to the price of this book! (See the enclosed CD-ROM for details.)

Praise for David Burch’s Radar Trainer navigation program:
