How to Select, Outfit, and Operate a Boat for Coastwise Cruising or Long-Distance Voyaging.
Powerboats are exciting and powerful machines that can cut through water like nothing else, but buying and sailing one of these machines is a careful process. A powerboat is expensive and in the wrong hands, can be dangerous. Stapletonís Powerboat Bible: The Complete Guide to Selection, Seamanship and Cruising is the leading guide for finding the right powerboat and staying safe on the water.
When it comes to purchasing a powerboat, there are many different varieties to choose in all price ranges. Salesmen are more interested in their commission than your well being, so itís important to go into it with as much knowledge as possible. Stapletonís Powerboat Bible is chock full of information you need to make the right purchase.
It guides you through the process from choosing the right boat, getting financing and insurance and finally getting it out on the water. If youíre not an avid seafarer, then you likely donít know what you need on the ship? The book takes care of that for you from the GPS receivers to anchors and medical kits.
Once the boat is outfitted, youíll learn all about navigation and communication such as how to handle the boat in both calm waters and during an emergency, going for your first long distance cruise and international cruising.
Powerboating is a dream few get to achieve, so when the time comes to make your dreams come true, make sure you have Stapletonís Powerboat Bible. Even veteran and experienced powerboaters keep a copy of this on their boat at all times because of its use as a reference and guide.
