Synopsis:

An unparalleled opportunity to learn the basics of good seamanship from the United States' ultimate boating authority

This book offers recreational boaters a rare opportunity to benefit from the highest standards of seamanship evolved by the U.S. Coast Guard over the course of its long and storied history. Available to the public for the first time, it contains the Coast Guard's approved methods and procedures for every aspect of navigation, seamanship, and handling all boats under power, including auxiliary sailboats­­, the same practices taught to all Coast Guard boat crews and coxswains. This handsome trade edition contains all the same information found in the Coast Guard's official loose-leaf training guide, reorganized and redesigned for ease of reference and aesthetic appeal. In addition to providing comprehensive coverage of all the basics of good seamanship, it provides readers with an unprecedented glimpse at accepted Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary procedures for dealing with extreme situations, including conducting search and rescue missions; towing; fire fighting; controlling vessel flooding; righting capsized boats; conducting air operations; handling boats in surf; and more.

From the Back Cover:

The Small-Boat Seamanship Manual offers a rare opportunity for recreational boaters to access the highest standards of seamanship practiced and perfected by the U.S. Coast Guard. Available to the public for the first time, this authoritative guide contains all the information found in the coast guard's official 1,200-page loose-leaf training guide and gives readers a unique perspective into U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary procedures. In addition to in-depth coverage of boat handling and navigation, readers will find a working resource of coast guard methods for dealing with extreme situations, including search and rescue, towing, fire fighting, vessel flood management, righting capsized boats, maneuvering in heavy surf, and much more:

  • How to maintain 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

This is the U.S. Coast Guard's primary resource for training its crews and coxswains for boat handling and seamanship in conditions ranging from benign to extreme. Now, for the first time, it is available to you in the Small-Boat Seamanship Manual.
