Boat Docking: (Close Quarters Maneuvering for Small Craft)
Boat Docking: (Close Quarters Maneuvering for Small Craft)
by Charles T. Low
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars better than another fender, 17 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book covers a lit of ground at quite a pace and I like it for that, it isn't the sort of book that one could take aboard as a quick reference, the binding is poor and the material is not quick to find if conditions are dictating use of an unfamiliar or new technique, I would love to have seen a bunch of exercises to help me and my partner learn how to work the boat and together, read in combination with stress free sailing I feel a lot better about taking my new and first 38foot yacht out to new marinas. I was going to say the price is a bit steep but it costs less than a good fender and is if i read and act upon the knowledge likely to save me considerably more than even a fender could over a lifetime of sailing.

I am writing this assuming the battery is ok, however the " screw drivers" are useless for my iphone 4 the screws on it are tiny in comparison not a chance that they could be opened with the tools so I have to go but a set of tools which means i might as well have bought them separately in the first place or a combo from another supplier hoping that they work. If it turns out my iphone has non standard screw I will return and amend the comment but as of now i have to shop for tools.

1.0 out of 5 stars useless - what a shame, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This unit is utterly let down by the fact that an iPad3 will not stay wedged into the tray for more than a few seconds and even less if one tried to type or touch the keyboard.

iPad3 had a very round chamfer finish to its back plate and this is to big to lock out in the plastic tray that this keyboard design uses to create a lap top like keyboard position. I didnt bother connecting the keyboard up to see if it works as there is no way i want my iPad continuously slapping back down onto the table.

Its a shame that design here fails as in all other respects for the price it looks like a well made little unit, and if you are prepared to glue your ipad in or put up with wedging it in some how with guide ropes like a tent perhaps it might be the unit for you!

The item shipped with two screen protectors so as a package it would have been great value, so close yet so very far from usable.

2.0 out of 5 stars barely a notebook, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you know Fieldnotes already then you will not be surprised at how small and thin these things are, if like me you had heard of the brand and thought the price looked as good as the photo then like me you may be disappointed by the size.

Clearly this is for someone who prefers the notion of having a not book in a field rather than taking any amount of serious notes while in a field. ( humour dont comment that there are other uses of the word field :) )

For me I can find better note books in pretty much any supermarket that will fit the serious not takers use better than these.

5.0 out of 5 stars close to perfect, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hate to think how many years I have had the lap top and not realized there were solutions like this, as far as I could see when i looked there are three main players and this is the mid priced item. i bought it in part because it has less poor rating in amazon reviews than the others, for example others mentioned poor build quality and flimsy plastic. this unit is a combination of aluminium and plastic, the design is simply executed and nicely finished.

Functionally the legs are cleaver and perfectly sturdy the unit cleverly combines the hinge mechanism into what becomes a retaining edge to stop the lap top sliding forward while at the same time being a comfortable wrist support.

The feel of the tray is really nice it has a coolness that plastic doesnt have and its relaxing.

Finding the best position for the legs is a matter of trial and error, and the instruction booklet is clear and informative with a few suggestions, I have a few different configurations for use on various chairs and sofas now.

Long and short of it is that in my opinion the unit is worth the extra money over the cheaper plastic units not that I have tried them, i am glad I spent out on the aluminium and in general I endorse that the unit does what it says on the packet ( not literally as the packaging is a plain white box ) and it does it with style.

Practical ideas that are not a fault of the unit but in my situation make sense, I have added a couple of velcro strips to the underside of my lap top so that i can be a little less concerned about the lap top sliding off the back when i have it with the shelf at the front, not in normal use but if one wishes to get up and put the unit down its nice to just tilt it back the other way.

I think the biggest risk of having the unit is household tray envy so had I known about this I would have ordered two.

Sort of what you expect from Cath Kidston, reasonable quality, distinctive design but you pay for the name and quite a lot for the name in this case.
