Voyaging Under Power
by Beebe, Robert & Denis Umstot
4th ed. In their definitive practical and philosophical guide to offshore powerboating, Beebe and Umstot use a winning mix of storytelling, theory, precise mathematical formulae, and design parameters to discuss what’s good and what’s bad in cruising-boat design. This edition has been updated to include sections on managing emotions, crew communication, the cruising community, dealing with reluctant spouses, and using email and Skype to keep in touch.
