SAFE MOTORBOATING FOR KIDS

Clear, pertinent photos and a clean shipshape format give a snappy tone to Navarra's introductory rundown of the parts, systems and operations of inboard and outboard motorboats. Besides offering safety advice -- much of it obvious, some of it less so -- about checking the weather, fuel, and wire insulation and using the dip stick, fire extinguisher, life jackets, etc., Navarra briefs potential motorboaters on what goes on in the carburetor and how the cooling system, electrical system and pumps do their work, and launches them with a review of horn and bell signals and storm warning flags.
