Informational books on cruising.

Hey guys, I own a '75 Gary Mull designed Ranger 26, mafe by O'day (I beleive). I have quite a bit of sailing experience but I am new to boat-ownership. I'm looking for some good books about owning and maintaining such a boat. I'm also looking for more information about general small boat cruising, preferrably with tips and techniques about sailing and cruising on boats LIKE mine. Design and sail-plan sketches are a bonus.

Re: Informational books on cruising.

I really like Jim Howard's book.

http://www.amazon.com/Handbook-Offsh...shore+cruising

The guy has a great attitude and writes in an enjoyable tone. Nigel Calder's books are decent for repair and technical stuff (and diesel). Jimmy Cornel (who I believe passed away, but don't quote me on that) is great for passage planning.

These books look awesome, thank you for the suggestion. However, I do think i'm looking for more about the sailboat itself, than the cruising lifestyle. Also, my boat is on the Great Salt Lake in Utah.
