"Vigor is one of the finest boating writers of our time."­­Cruising World

Boating encompasses an impressive array of disciplines, and every sailor or powerboater worth his or her salt is, by turns, a seaman, navigator, mechanic, electrician, painter, carpenter, meteorologist, medic, cook, and even, on occasion, a diplomat. Which is why it is so surprising that, until now, there has been no single-source reference to which a mariner could turn for practical, up-to-date information in all these areas.

The Practical Encyclopedia of Boating is the first guide to all practical­­and many theoretical­­aspects of recreational boating under sail and power. From seamanship to maintenance, navigation to boat design and construction, nautical lore and esoterica to the science of how things work, this handy reference gives sailors and powerboaters quick access to just the right amount of information needed to answer most questions and solve most problems.

This well written and to the point. An excellent reference for anyone but especially someone who is getting started in boating. It is one of those that you will want to refer to again and again.

This is mildly interesting read, but is not exhaustive or deep enough to be a true reference book. Might make a nice gift.
