Developed in 1917 by pioneering small-craft enthusiast and Motor Boating magazine editor Charles F. Chapman, Chapman Piloting covers the gamut of information that both the fledgling boater and seasoned mariner need to know. The 62nd edition includes fully updated sections on navigation with satellite technology, procedures for emergencies, and maritime laws and regulations. In addition to the thorough chapters on boating basics, safety, the art of seamanship, waves and weather, piloting and navigation, electronic equipment, and the boating community, subjects are wonderfully illustrated, cross-referenced, and supplemented by a comprehensive glossary of boating terms. Without question, Chapman Piloting remains a standard text for boating schools and has long stood as a ready and dependable first mate in wheelhouses of powerboaters and sailboaters alike. --Byron RicksAbout the Author:
