KIRKUS REVIEW

Beginning (and ending) with boats, this encompasses everything the novice needs to know about building and/or buying a boat, and maintaining and operating it, whether it be a simple homemade job like a raft, a box boat, a ""kit"" boat or a store-bought canoe, sailboat or outboard. Diagrams and illustrations help the prospective sailor understand every inch of his craft and how to run it under a variety of conditions. Rules of safety and courtesy afloat sum up a thorough overhauling of a subject launched by techniques of how to convince Papa to loosen the purse strings. Well written by an expert.
