From the Back Cover:

Your comprehensive guide to captaining your own boat

Whether you're a nautical novice or an experienced boater, this friendly guide explains everything you need to know about owning and operating a power boat. From the basics of safe seamanship and docking and mooring techniques to necessary equipment, routine maintenance, and hosting guests, you'll discover how to get the most out of this exciting sport.

  • Power up to be a boater— determine what type of boat is right for you, set your boat budget, and get trained and licensed

  • Gear up for safety and fun — select quality safety gear, secure and protect your boat, and make a splash with watersports activities

  • Handle your boat like a pro — tow your boat, maintain your trailer, launch and load your boat, and drive properly and safely

  • Be a responsible boater — know boating rules and regulations, read boat lights, and understand navigation markers

  • Keep your boat shipshape — perform maintenance and minor repairs (and know when to call a mechanic), and get your boat ready for winter and spring
