Review

"Modern Seamanship is an encyclopedic reference that every boater will want to keep near at hand." - Richard Thiel, Editor, Power & Motoryacht; "Something useful on every page." - Don Casey, author, This Old Boat; "Authoritative and accessible." - Tim Queeney, Editor, Ocean Navigator

Synopsis

A comprehensive ready-reference guide for all recreational boaters. Modern Seamanship is a comprehensive guide for boaters who wish to learn how to solve boating problems on their own by analysing a situation and deftly using acquired knowledge. This book presumes you wish to know why, and not just how. Don Dodds covers in detail the use of such laboursaving technological advances as GPS and radar, which have revolutionized recreational boating in the past decade. But because technology, like water wings, can get boaters literally and figuratively into deep water without knowing how to swim, Modern Seamanship also explores the traditional seamanship skills upon which these space-age devices are based - skills that always work, whether or not the batteries are dead. In its pages you will find information on navigation, weather, boat handling, docking, mooring, anchoring, common emergencies, communications, working with rope, and maintenance - all skills a mariner needs to deal confidently with the sea.
