9781574090345: From the Fo'c's'le

For years David Kasanof's "Fo'c's'le" column has entertained the readers of WoodenBoat magazine with its unique blend of humor and insight into the sailing lifestyle. In this collection of over fifty selected pieces readers will recognize their boats, their fellow sailors and themselves.

Here are some of Kasanof's observations: On boat interiors: "Marine stuff doesn't work as well as land stuff because marine stuff is just a toy version of the corresponding land stuff"; on the weather: "First, buy a barometer that has an anchor or sailboat design somewhere on it"; on wooden boats: "People who sail old wooden boats are never young. Even if they were young when they took to wooden boats, they aged fast."

This book is guaranteed to make "Fo'c's'le" fans out of new readers and is the perfect way for Kasanof aficionados to catch up on those essays they may have missed. It is a book so filled with lighthearted humor that even the crustiest of old salts will burst out laughing. Illustrations by R. Gorski complement the text and offer plenty of laughs of their own.

About the Author:

David Kasanof lives on his boat Content in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Having sailed all his life, he was on the staff of the famous Rudder magazine and was also editor of Classic Boat Monthly. He has been a regular contributor to WoodenBoat magazine almost since its inception.

Review:

This series of musings is a compilation of the best from the author s regular column in WoodenBoat magazine in the USA. Even though he is a yachtie, the owner of the 41ft wooden cutter, it succeeds as a perceptive commentary.

It deals with subjects close to all our hearts, such as the difficulties of maintaining a boat and keeping the family happy on the water, and the problems posed by marine equipment. (Motor Boat Monthly)

Kasanof is familiar to readers of WoodenBoat magazine for his funny, insightful and diverse column that lends its name to the book title. He's picked out some of his favorites for this book collection 60 pieces in which the readers often will see themselves, their boats and their boating friends. A lifelong sailor and former writer for Rudder magazine, Kasanof is retired and lives in Florida on a boat he restored (Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal)

Lighthearted insights about all sorts of nautical nuances abound in this entertaining book by a WoodenBoat magazine humor columnist. Need a wind-direction indicator? Use your face, Kasanof advises. It's standard equipment, doesn t cost $279.95, and works most of the time. (Cruising World)
