With the exalted title of “Captain” comes a big responsibility: the comfort and safety of everyone on board. This means being proactive: even if you think you anticipate all the possibilities, using common sense and avoiding unnecessary risks, it’s crucial to have a Plan B in place if something goes wrong. Chapman 101 Things Every Boater Needs to Know is all about that alternative strategy. It offers time- and experience-tested solutions to some of the most common problems all boaters encounter, whether at the dock or on the water. From having enough fuel for the trip to fixing a leaky hose, from dealing with a dead battery at sea to handling chart-plotter troubles, this is advice that may get you, your crew, and your passengers out of a bad situation or—even better—prevent you from getting into a tight spot in the first place.
