Product description

From the Back Cover

All sailors want to believe their boats can go anywhere and stand up to anything. Who knows when you might get caught by bad weather? It's enough to worry about your own responses without worrying about the safety of your boat. The Seaworthy Offshore Sailboat explains feature by feature how you can refit your boat for worry-free bluewater voyaging.

Take the unique diagnostic questionnaire to determine whether your boat is capable of offshore sailing, then let John Vigor show you step by step how to get there, as he covers everything from structural modifications and reinforcements to rigging, engines, systems, and gear. Whether you're planning an offshore voyage or just dreaming of one, The Seaworthy Offshore Sailboat is the perfect guide.

"An invaluable resource. Vigor's practical wisdom gives you the know-how and confidence to prepare your boat for the sea."--Cruising World

"Not only hands us practical advice in a clear format but also the hope that an offshore voyage is fully within our grasp if we are willing to follow his roadmap."--Good Old Boat

"Vigor's questionnaire offers hard-to-find, honest evaluations of whether or not a boat is bluewater capable. . . . This clear, objective reference will make fearless, prudent skippers."--Mariner

About the Author

John Vigor has sailed more than 15,000 ocean miles in boats 11 to 40 feet. He is the author of The Practical Mariner's Book of Knowledge and The Boatowner's Handbook.
