BOAT NAVIGATION FOR THE REST OF US Finding Your Way by Eye and Electronics

By Brogdon, Captain Bill

Intl Marine Pub. Very Good+. 1995. First Edition. Softcover. 0070081646 . Ex-library book, but still in great condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Interior pages clean, tight and unmarked. Cover has a little scuffing and price sticker on rear. Illustrated. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 220 pages; The popular texts would have us navigate our small boats using the same techniques found on an aircraft carrier. But these elaborately precise methods just don't work in the bouncy, wet, cramped cockpit of a typical pleasure craft. This is the first book to teach small-boat navigation the way most people actually navigate, combining electronic aids like radar, GPS, and Loran with commonsense visual piloting and seat-of-the-pants chartwork. It explains in plain, simple language exactly how to find where you are and get where you want to go with a minimum of fuss, and contains many useful but relatively unpublicized methods specifically designed for use aboard the nation's 20 million small power- and sailboats.

This heavy dose of information is presented in an easy-to-understand text and a user-friendly design that features sidebars, color and b&w illustrations, maps, etc. While the scope of the book may be more than a casual boater needs, the author assumes many readers are novices. For example, he says, "Among the most important of all piloting tools are ordinary pencils and erasers. Pencils should be neither too hard nor too soft ." More experienced sailors might know this, but a weekend boater may not think to bring one on board. The section on motors provides color photographs with labels designating each part. Appendix material includes a listing of such useful information as state registration offices, boating organizations and marine safety offices.

Author Ed Jaworowski explores the question and the subject in all its variety, complexity and subtlety.... Review: "....I took an introductory class on fly fishing with my father whom I had talked into learning the sport. Ed Jaworowski was the teacher. I can say first hand that he can cast a fly line an incredible distance -- and he can teach how. His book had just come out at the time, though I didn't acquire a copy until recently. After all these years, I can say that this is an excellent book on casting the fly rod in a way that maximizes the efficiency of the rod; I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in saltwater fly fishing in particular.
