Review quote

"There is no other book as comprehensive or as readable as "The Annapolis Book of Seamanship," and this 4th edition sets a new benchmark. Completely revised sections, including safety, heavy weather, electronics, health, emergencies and more, make the book more than 50% new. This is "the" one book that should be on every sailor's bookshelf."--Chris Caswell "editor of CharterSavvy, author Greatest Sailing Stories Ever Told "
