I first ran across this gem at a friend's home during 2009. We both own older boats. I thought this was an excellant book and came home and order a used copy for my library. Spurr has several worth while books on the market.

It's a good book I guess if you have a 70 foot liveaboard sailboat. I have a 26 foot weekender an found very little that was of any real use to me.
