Why Didn't I Think of That? brings together the lessons learned, the tested advice, and the ingenious solutions of more than 200 sailors from around the world. Here you'll find nearly 1,200 tips on everything from anchors to bilge pumps, refrigeration to communication, food preparation to handy gadgets, finding just the right tool to weathering the weather, and cruising with children to making your boat a secure and comfortable home. Whether you're new to cruising or a full-time liveaboard, this book belongs on board.

About the Author:

John and Susan Roberts have been sailing and writing for nearly 20 years. Their articles have appeared in Yachting, SAIL, and Cruising World. They finished their 36-foot sailboat, Sea Sparrow, from a bare hull and have cruised her from Maine to the Caribbean and back. This is their third book.
