Book Description:

The equivalent of a round table of experts exchanging views and tips on sailboat maintenance and repair, seamanship, navigation, safety, and boat management. Each tip or option is titled and bylined, with several per topic and many topics per chapter, making the book a salty delight to browse. The editors, themselves experts, interject occasional advice of their own and keep the whole forum rolling smoothly.

From the Back Cover:
