Practical Seamanship


632 pages of exhaustive detail on practically every aspect of seamanship, both traditional and modern. "A graduate course in going to sea...Will shave 10 to 20 years off your learning curve." (Sailing Magazine)

"Replete with literally dozens and dozens of clear, concise photos and illustrations, and chockful of first-hand stories from countless long-range voyagers, the Dashews' encylopedic Practical Seamanship is a vast resource that'll be an important reference tool for sailors planning to follow in the wakes of its prolific authors...All I can say is 'wow'..." Herb McCormick, Editor, Cruising World

Practical Seamanship is unique in that it is written for both novice and experienced sailors alike. It builds on your existing knowledge, augmenting all you have learned with nearly a thousand tips, techniques and warning signs, making all your cruising better. And the "essential skills" you'll learn will make all the difference in difficult situations.

As with the Steve & Linda Dashews' other books, Practical Seamanship excels at making this information easily accessible and user-friendly. More than just a book, it is engineered to be used as a tool, with executive summaries, quick reference check lists and detailed indexes. You'll refer back to it for years to come. It is an important asset and should be aboard every vessel.

Whether you are working your way through ice, piloting in coral, running a breaking bar, anchoring in a hurricane hole, or salvaging your boat after a hurricane, Practical Seamanship covers it all.

Another unique aspect of Practical Seamanship is that it is actually built to be taken offshore, with water resistant, commercial grade, hard cover binding and a lifetime salt-water warranty. It gets even better, as it comes with a 90-day satisfaction guarantee. At $69.95 it is a real bargain.
