I'll be checking that out. I'm always impressed when I run into a boating female with some real savvy and experience, as opposed to the hood ornament or the gal happily wearing that "First Mate" T shirt.

Have you had a look at Lin and Larry Paradey’s “Self Sufficient Sailor”?

http://www.amazon.com/Self-Sufficient-Sailor-Larry-Pardey/dp/0964603675/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1P7E42TNV6GTQ&colid =FIQJ0T68TH4P

For a fraction of the price, I found this book enthralling reading on very similar themes; mostly written by Lin back in the days when they were sailing an engineless 24 footer and very motivational for the ladies!
