Ready to Sail

Ready to Sail

$49.95 GST

Having spent more than a dozen years conducting boat inspections, delivery captain Ed Mapes saw just how unsafe and ill prepared some boats were for sailing offshore. This led Mapes to develop his own system for inspecting, repairing and fitting out boats, which led to Ready to Sail, a guide to getting a boat and its crew ready for offshore passage-making.
Mapes goes over the boat with a fine-toothed comb, pointing out things to look for, possible problems and how to go about fixing them. Detailed without overly relying on technical jargon, Ready to Sail provides a comprehensive but easy-to-follow road map to anyone who needs to inspect and fit out a boat for bluewater sailing.
This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated.
PB 207 pages.

    Being in the process of buying our first yacht I found this to be a very handy companion to the endless lists of things to check up on. There are some omissions and oversights but all in all it is a very useful book. The checklists at the back suffer from some duplication and also some omissions, but the general framework is so useful I would recommend this for anyone preparing a yacht for sea.
