I'm a bit of book collector when it comes to boats / sailing etc I have just under 600 currently and the aim is 1000 before 65 . I have old , new, fiction , technical etc. including 4 versions of Bowditch going back to 1895.
No book contains the answers , again the modern mind seems to be conditioned to seek " direction" rather then to engage in understanding and then to form your own ideas and then to have the courage of your resulting convictions.
I mean I have 30 books
on celestial nav yet I have my own particular way of doing it.
I have 25 books
that deal with heavy weather
sailing , again all are right and none are right.
