Make the U.S. Coast Guard your first mate

The Small-Boat Seamanship Manual contains all the information found in the Coast Guard's official 1,200-page training manual, giving you access to the highest standards of seamanship practiced and perfected by professional mariners. In addition to in-depth coverage of boat handling and navigation, you’ll find instructions for dealing with extreme situations, including search and rescue, towing, firefighting, vessel flood management, righting capsized boats, and maneuvering in heavy surf. You’ll also learn about

  • Steering with a broken hydraulic line
  • Close-quarters maneuvering
  • Using the right lines and knots
  • Capsize prevention, precautions, and survival techniques
  • Change-of-course maneuvers to reduce icing and freezing spray
  • Plugging and patching holes for flood control
  • Predicting weather
