Multihulls offer sailors expansive comfort, impressive speed, precise maneuverability, and, in the case of trailerables, easy storage and transportability. No wonder boat buyers and charter clients have begun migrating toward cats and tris in unprecedented numbers.
Multihull Cruising Fundamentals taps into the essence of multihull sailing and gives readers a clear and concise analysis of these largely unfamiliar boats. Chapters one through four provide the skills sailors need to get trailerable multihulls safely into the water, rigged and sailing. Larger, cruising catamarans and their unique sailing and handling needs are addressed in chapters five through eight.
The material in this book was developed by the American Sailing Association's Multihull Committee for use in classes throughout North America. Students will learn quickly and efficiently from Multihull Cruising Fundamentals' "no nonsense," step-by-step format. The knowledge and skills found in this text will prepare sailors to more fully enjoy the most forward-looking boats on today's pleasure boat market.

It covers basic principles and techniques for a wide variety of outboards four-stroke as well as two-stroke with the emphasis on maintenance and advanced troubleshooting. Ed Sherman's clear explanations and diagrams take you step by step through the basics and beyond, helping you track down even the most elusive problems a modern outboard can throw in your way. His methodical approach can save you a world of frustration and peril as well as time-and-a-half weekEND mechanics' charges.
