KIRKUS REVIEW

The columnist for boating in the N. Y. Journal American directs his suggestions, tips, advice and instructions to the new or boat-owner-to-be, for his opening chapters define terms, the kind of motor boat that will fit your needs, hulls and their construction, outboard and inboard motors, boat trailers, and used boats. There are sections on financing, insurance, and operating costs; on legal obligations and required equipment; on lights, seamanship and handling, rules of the road; on knot tying, anchoring and mooring; on safety and emergencies, piloting and navigation; on maintenance, hull and motor, in and out of season; and on successful cruising. A cover-all for the neophyte, this underlines basic boating necessities and behaviors for all pleasure craft.
