Description

SAFER OFFSHORE
by Ed Mapes

No skipper should ever take a vessel or crew onto the open ocean without the means to cope with the unthinkable. Disasters occur because of a cascade of untoward events; the best seamen are able to interrupt this sequence and circumvent tragic outcomes. Safer Offshore catalogs solutions to real life situations and provides the reader with information seldom discussed by other authors: how to manage emergency situations and crises on the open ocean when no help is available.

Learn about emergency communications, how to deal with flooding or fire, how to repair a faulty engine, how to cope with medical emergencies, helicopter evacuation, abandon ship techniques, surviving in the life raft, and much more. This book provides crucial information that can help make an ocean sailor truly safer offshore.

During his 30+ years of high seas voyaging, the author has seen many would-be catastrophes: blown sails, lost steering, broken rigs and other potential nightmares. In the book, assisted by clear concise diagrams and photos, he cooly and calmly addresses all these situations and many more. This book should certainly be on any shipboard bookshelf. SC,2010, 292 pages. SW 1 lb.
