About the Author:

Mike Harris has spent the last 14 years cruising in interesting places while writing and developing software for cruising sailors. His micro-office is his boat, a 45 foot steel cutter which he built himself. www.pangolin.co.nz

Review:

The perfect reference book to shelve beside the often-confounding weatherfax receiver. (Ocean Navigator)

This very handy reference book will take up little room on board and can be firmly recommended. (Sail Magazine)

Written by a seasoned New Zealand voyager, this updated guide to predicting weather from weatherfax and Internet charts doesn t overwhelm; rather, it breaks the technology down to its simplest terms, supported by a glossary of commonly used words and abbreviations. It also covers computer installation, radio/computer interface, software, antennas, and tuning radios for fax as well as interpreting synoptic charts. (Cruising World)
