9781574092844: Sustainable Sailing: Go Green When You Cast Off

Offering advice to sailors on 'going green,' this timely book embraces the growing trend toward sustainable lifestyles and shows how 'clean boating' can be both practical and enjoyable. Sailing is by nature a sustainable activity, but polluted waters and crowded marinas, boatyards, and anchorages are signs that problems must be addressed in order to keep it that way. What does 'green' mean anyway? Is it improved efficiency? More considerate behavior? Greater awareness and less ignorance? It is all of the above and more, but one thing it is not is a luxury. 'Going green' is becoming the norm, while 'staying dirty' will become increasingly expensive, inconvenient, and, eventually, obsolete. Dieter Loibner shows sailors how to reduce their carbon footprint and lessen their impact on the environment as well as how to be a positive force for change. Topics covered include: Clean-boating initiatives and advice from longtime cruisers; Tweaking the boat - miracles of efficiency (from rigging to maintenance); Optimizing onboard systems (from renewable energy sources to LED lights); Simple, smart, and cost-effective solutions (from where to moor to which cleaning agents to avoid)
