Boater’s Bowditch: The Small-Craft American Practical Navigator
by Hubbard, Richard Keith
From the current editor of the U.S. government’s 195-year-old ‘American Practical Navigator’ comes this useful abridged version for pleasure boaters and commercial operators of small craft. Covers coastal and celestial navigation in depth, with a sympathetic eye for the art of wayfinding as practised from the tossing cockpit or wheelhouse of a small boat. Also discusses the latest navigational technologies including GPS, radar, and electronic charts.
