Synopsis:

This quick-reference guide is an on-board data bank, compiling in one place all the facts, figures, tables, and graphs boat operators need. In 17 chapters ranging from deck gear to electronics to rigging and fuel calculations, it groups information logically for both power- and sailboat owners.

The amount of data a boat owner needs within fingertips reach can be staggering: recommended anchor sizes and types, cleat sizes for specified lines, fender sizes, GPS accuracy, VHF radio ranges, electrical power consumption, propeller pitch and diameter, and multitudinous other arcana. Boatowner's Handbook puts all this information in one place, boils it down to its most accessible form, and makes it easy to retrieve.

From the Back Cover:

"An excellent addition to any sailor's library."­­Sailing

This quick-reference guide is an on-board data bank, compiling all the thousands of facts, figures, tables, and graphs boat operators need. Practical, easy-to-find timesaving tips and golden rules provide information on everything from buying paint and adhesives, drilling pilot holes, showing navigation lights, and rigging a boat to provisioning for a cruise, sizing a propeller or oars, and choosing a dinghy.

Recommended anchor sizes and types, GPS accuracy, VHF radio ranges, electrical power consumption, cleat sizes--the immense amount of data any power- or sailboat owner requires is right here. This is the boat owner's portable memory and database.

What reviewers said about the hardcover edition, The Sailor's Assistant:

"Helpful and comprehensive...Vigor presents an incredible amount of information in a very clear way."­­Ocean Navigator.

"I recommend it to all readers without qualification. It will probably see more use than any other book in your collection."­­Ash Breeze.

"Another amazingly helpful compendium of nautical information."­­Living Aboard.

"Well organized and easy to read. It should be on every vessel. It is a must for any cruising sailor."­­Ensign.
