PRACTICAL SEAMANSHIP on CD
by Linda & Steve Dashew
This CD ROM, virtually a graduate course in going to sea, puts you on deck with Dashew, or one of his many and notable contributors, tacking in heavy seas, navigating across a heavily trafficked sea lane, entering a coral lagoon, setting an anchor, or reading the weather. Amazingly, he has succeeded in providing new material despite having written the other books on this page. He does it by putting these topics together in one CD with the common denominator being that Practical Seamanship is a reference book to achieve a safe voyage.
Now you can leave most of your other CDs at home, perhaps even the dog-eared old Chapmans. Anecdotal, chatty, continuously informative, with countless illustrative tales and photos of nautical mishaps and disasters, this book tells us not just how to do it, but why, when, and often where. Virtually every pages is studded with clearly drawn diagrams, photos, and illuminating sidebars. This is a wonderful book to read and most importantly — to have on board.
