From the Back Cover:

Be Smart, Be Safe, and Enjoy your Time on the Water One of the first rules of enjoying the great outdoors is you don't fool around with Mother Nature- especially when it comes to water. Whether you're in a sailboat on a pond or a fishing boat chugging away on the ocean, the rules of seamanship are essential to know. Every boater needs to understand the basics of safety before setting foot on deck. The Essential Guide to Boating: Seamanship is more than a beginner's guide to boating. It provides in-depth information on boat handling and navigation, and how best to read the changing water, weather, and wind conditions. Beyond the basic tenets of mastering practical details, Seamanship will provide knowledge for handling deck equipment, a thorough understanding of safety devices and how to use them, and offer a disciplined approach to preparing, stowing, and maintaing all the unglamourous but critical pieces of boating equipment. With this helpful guide and a respect for Mother Nature to inform and inspire you, your seamanship skills will save you from discomfort and danger while allowing you to safely enjoy your time on the water.
