The Practical Mariners Book of Knowledge: 420 Sea-Tested Rules of Thumb for Almost Every Boating Situation (CLS.EDUCATION) by John Vigor

This book--distilled from centuries of seafaring wisdom (and the authors 20 years of researching, clipping, and collecting)--provides quick, simple answers to most of the questions sailors and powerboaters--both novice and experienced--ask about small boats and the sea. Covered are 420 topics in alphabetical entries, which are conveniently accessed via a thoroughly cross-referenced master index. Among the topics covered are hull thickness, estimating distances, bottom paint coverage, when to hoist and lower flags, predicting weather, which colors are unlucky, rope size and strengths, anchoring rights, and making a rum punch. When greater precision is needed, it will in most cases be found in the extensive appendices.
