Books You Wouldn't Leave the Dock without...

1. Nigel Calder's Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual.

Yachting Montly Sailpower, decribes how sails work and how to trim them in simple steps, nothing complicated all very straight forward and good descriptions with diagrams / photos. Thought I had lost it so bought another copy off Amazon. Now have a copy at home and one on the boat.

Another forum I belong to is running a similar thread, but not boating related.

Here are two I stole from there. They are PDF's which would make them real simple to take along.

Throw in the Rules of the Road if your boat is over 12 meters. That's the law.

I would not leave without Chapmans guide. Of course, if I take a book on my little cat, it may not come back in the same condition!
