Be a Better Skipper

In the night, wind, rain, fog, big seas, strong currents, or congested waters, when there’s no time for textbook seamanship solutions, what you wish to have are shortcuts and techniques that work quickly and reliably each time.

Distilled from the vast accumulated lore of seamanship and navigation, here are the absolute essentials–185 techniques that work without fail in the pilothouse or the exposed cockpit or flying bridge of a shorthanded sail- or powerboat. John Jamieson shows you how to:

  • Set up a clipboard chart table for cockpit use
  • Avoid hazards with danger bearings or a GPS grid highway
  • Estimate current speeds with the 50-90-100 rule
  • Track other boats in poor visibility the usage of radar plots and bearing waft
  • Sail home without a rudder or get your twin-screw boat home on one working engine
  • Dock or anchor under any conditions
  • And much, much more

Even in this age of electronic navigation you wish to have to understand how to eyeball your boat through any situation. Each and every of the techniques in this cut-to-the-chase book has shown itself to be absolutely repeatable. It’ll work this time, the next time, and the time a er that, in conditions fair or foul.
