I have used this book to teach classes for safe boating since this edition came out. It addresses everything the boater should know about boats and boating.

I gave this to my son for Christmas. He recently purchased his first boat. This is THE book for beginners. Although my son is a mechanic he found this book to be of great value with information on boat safety as well as maintenance. The book caught my eye because it is endorsed by the Coast Guard. My son could barely keep his head out of it on Christmas day.

A minor upgrade from previous version. Major improvement is the "find more info" bibliographies to the chapters, but those listings are mostly "books" vs. electronic links. Best update is the Navigation section with more info on GPS device management. Some data is old, but useful for those who own older style engines. Will continue to be a good reference for serious boaters who want to know more than what a basic safety course will present.

I'm researching boats to make a purchase and want to know what I'm doing once I get out on the water.
This is a comprehensive and easy to understand resource.

I found this to be a very informative publication on boating. Even if you are coming in with very minimal knowledge, it will teach you many of the basics. With boating, as with many other things, there is no substitute for experience out on the water, but this is a solid way to learn some fundamentals before hitting the water. You might even avoid bad habits from the very beginning by reading this book first. Definitely recommend.
