Synopsis: A complete guide to handling, navigating and maintaining a motor cruiser. This book is essential reading for anyone new to cruising under power. It describes how to choose a boat and maintain it (there is an extensive photo--essay on diesel engine maintenance and troubleshooting). Navigation, particularly using GPS, is fully covered as are VHF radio techniques and the Rule of the Road. Major sections deal with boat handling, weather and passage making. The whole book is beautifully illustrated with specially taken colour photos and photo--sequences.

From the Back Cover: Power, exhilaration, Control, Freedom. That's motor boating.

The lure of the open sea. The joy of exploring new shores, new harbours, or inland waterways. The thrill of speed on the water or the pleasure of pottering, away from it all.

But there's more to it than filling the tank and casting off. How do you know where you're going - or where you are? What do you do if the weather cuts up rough, or the fog closes in? And how do you keep your boat and engines in good order?

This updated and expanded colour edition covers all the essentials of successful motor boating:

  • Choosing and buying the boat that's right for you
  • Registration, licensing and insurance
  • Equipping your boat with the right gear
  • Boat handling - in harbour, at sea and inland
  • Following the 'rule of the road' on water
  • Navigating, using paper charts, GPS and plotters
  • Finding and interpreting weather forecasts
  • Using a VHF radio
  • Planning and completing a safe passage
  • Dealing with emergencies
  • Maintaining your boat and its engine(s)
  • Towing and launching a trailable boat.
