Owning a boat involves sailors developing a whole new skill set and taking on a raft of new responsibilities, but this essential handbook takes the stress out of what should be an enjoyable, rewarding next step, and shares a wealth of practical advice on what might initially seem daunting new challenges.Drawn from over 35 years of the author's own experiences, this book is packed with expert wisdom and hand-holding guidance on every aspect of owning, equipping, maintaining, sailing and - of course - enjoying your first boat.Topics covered include:Choice of boat; Insurance; Assessing (and costing) moorings and berths; Navigation and safety equipment; Domestic equipment (galley, bedding, clothing, etc); Navigation (including in fog); Manoeuvring in close spaces; Sources of weather information and forecasts; Responsibilities towards crew; Catering and cooking; Maintenance advice (daily tips, winterising, engine servicing, fitting out for spring, etc); Paperwork (including customs forms); Dealing with emergencies; and more.Filled with colour photos and diagrams throughout, this comprehensive guide is indispensable for new skippers who have learned to sail at a sailing school or on a friend's boat and are ready to take the next step.
