Favorite Free Books? Yachting Related, that is...

So how about everyone posting links to their favorite boat books that are available for free download? Sea stories, technical, historical, DIY, safety, whatever.

I'll start off with a favorite of mine.

Dashew Offshore, Beowulf Publishing, and the FPB team have been blessed with the support of the cruising community for many years, and weíd like to return the favor in a small way. We are making Marinerís Weather Handbook, Surviving the Storm, Practical Seamanship and Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia available for free as PDF files.

People who know of me at all probably do so as a sailor; but I have always thought of myself as an artist, and I believe that the artistís defining responsibility is to go to the edge of human experience and send back reports. Here are my reports.
