-- Not positioned against any other branded competition.

An excellent overview of both power boating and sailing -- and focusing on the techniques shared by both. For example, anchoring, motoring, docking, trailering and other techniques are critical for both types of boaters to learn -- and the most common techniques omitted by most sailing only books. It also covers weather, safety, maps, rules of the road, dealing with people on the boat, gear, types of boats -- power and sailboats and the basics of sailing. New material for this edition will include information on GPS and other marien electronics including wireless mapping and navigation systems, sailboat maintenance from sails to rigging, fuel-savers such as four stroke outboards and HPDI, the latest seasickness cures, advances in PFDs, and getting your captain's license!
