Aside from qualifying as text for University level courses Seamanship Secrets provides essential knowledge you'll be happy you know when you hit the waterways. The book is well written, concise and very useful.

My copy is heavily annotated and highlighted. There's a lot of essential info in here. Aside from the essential knowledge required for a happy successful boating adventure, everyone - no exceptions - will want to read the chapter on Preventing and Handling Emergencies. This book went straight into a large zip lock and was added to my boating essentials.

The style is to the point with examples where appropriate. John's wisdom really comes through and he decorates the passages with seasoned wit.

THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ! I can repeat this 1000 times and still never get the point across too well.

Seamanship Secrets is an investment. You're return will come in one of three ways: 1) time saved in preparing (increasing your enjoyment), 2) money saved through proper maintenance of both vehicle and tools, or 3) your life.

John Jamieson's Seamanship Secrets is a great investment for any level of skill. I recommend it for anyone, even people who are only passengers. Knowledge is power and John brings you a great wealth of it in this book. Certainly a purchase you come to appreciate. Enjoy!
