The popular texts would have us navigate our small boats with the techniques used on ships and large yachts. But these elaborately precise methods just don't work in the cockpit of a typical pleasure craft. This is the first book to teach small-boat navigation the way smart skippers actually navigate, combining electronics like GPS, loran, and radar with commonsense visual piloting and seat-of-the-pants chartwork. Captain Brogdon explains in plain, simple language exactly how to find where you are and how to get where you want to go with a minimum of fuss.

Boat Navigation for the Rest of Us is the only book that teaches navigation the way small-boat skippers actually navigate: by combining electronic aids like GPS and radar with commonsense visual piloting skills and simple chartwork. This second edition covers important developments in electronic navigation, including dramatic improvements in GPS accuracy, the growing popularity of electronic charts and plotting systems, and the increasing availability of navigation information over the Internet. It's a full course in navigation plus a whole toolbox of little-known tips and shortcuts to deal with real-life situations without a slide rule.About the Author:
