Harbour Manoeuvres Step by Step

$50.00 GST

A comprehensive handbook for this essential but tricky skill using the unique approach of bird’s eye view photos to guide helmsmen through each step of close quarters manoeuvring.

Every boatowner needs to manoeuvre their boat in harbour – whether in their home marina or when visiting another marina along the coast. And its when entering or leaving harbour that good boat handling skills have to be faultless – otherwise expensive damage can ensue. This is the step by step photographic book that will show a helmsman exactly where he needs to position his boat (and what action he needs to apply to a wheel, tiller or throttle lever) in order to place it there. With no brakes, and often with wind and tide to contend with, it can often be a tricky exercise. This is the book that will act as an instructor alongside the novice or nervous experienced helmsman every step of the way, showing exactly what to do in each situation – berthing alongside with an onshore wind; an offshore wind; with a favourable tide; a contrary tide; with both wind and tide acting together or against etc. A unique handbook, Harbour Manoeuvres Step by Step covers in great detail everything needed to master this essential skill
