Dockmanship (Cornell Boaters Library) by David Owen Bell

Dockmanship, according to author Bell, is the art, skill, and practice of safely berthing and unberthing a vessel. Anyone whos ever spent time observing the action at a marina or boat ramp will concede that the way the docking skill is practiced by many recreational boaters today can hardly be considered an art.<P>Here, finally, is a book that provides the needed information to turn any skipper -- even a novice -- into a master of the docking art. Captains who feel they already perform well behind the helm will enjoy reviewing the standard and advanced techniques contained in this easily understood manual.<P>The basics of rudders, propellers, lines, and fenders used on small to medium-sized boats are completely explored. For each type of propulsion (inboard, outboard, single-screw, double-screw, and sail), techniques are described for maneuvering port side to, starboard side to, stern in, and bow in, as well as for getting away and handling the boat in close quarters. For each of these situations, the author also clarifies the effects of wind and current.
