Perfect First Mate

A light-hearted approach to the serious task of adapting to life afloat and providing support for the less than perfect skipper, sometimes referred to as “Captain My Way”. The author’s suggestion is that first you read the book for fun and then you read it for yourself. Contents cover storage issues, moving and sleeping comfortably below decks, keeping the cabin warm/cool, counteracting boat odour, and dealing with laundry, marine toilets and garbage. One entire section is devoted to food: provisioning and storage, equipping the galley, and cooking with original recipes included. The author also provides in-depth discussions on how to protect against the elements, avoid injury, and deal with the logistics of sailing, from planning, navigation and weather to crew work and entertaining guests. 229 pages, black & white illustrations, paperback.
