A newly-published Dictionary of Nautical Acronyms and Abbreviations complied by Donald Launer contains a listing of the acronyms, abbreviations and truncations that recreational boaters encounter in nautical magazine articles, books, instruction manuals and Coast Guard reports. He says a reference such as this has never been published before. The book is in two parts. Part I is an alphabetical listing of about 650 abbreviations, along with an explanation of each, including 38 illustrations. Part II consists of excerpts from NOAA¹s Chart No. 1 which lists all the abbreviations used on the government¹s nautical charts. Chart No. 1 was originally available from NOAA chart dealers, but is now no longer published. Launer is currently Contributing Editor for Good Old Boat Magazine and author of the book A Cruising Guide to New Jersey Waters. 145 pages PB
