Re: Books recommended for cruising on catamarans

You can get this at Barnes and Noble. Really well written without being too technical. And the most current.
REFERENCE BOOK: “CATAMARANS, The Complete Guide for Cruising Sailors” - Aeroyacht

This over 5 hour CD: "Multihull Cruising in the Caribbean", Is available @ [link removed - send PM to Mark for details - TJ]. It is useful for pointing out their cruising advantages as well as where they can go that the deeper draft guys can't. It covers the Bahamas, the Eastern, and the Western Caribbean cruising grounds. There are also tips on sailing, provisioning, seamanship, safety, anchoring, weather tactics, best diving & spear fishing, favorite countries, clearing in, sea stories, etc...

Enjoy,

Mark Johnson

Re: Books Recommended for Cruising on Catamarans

I wonder if there is a book on crusing up and down the USA's west coast on a catamaran from Baha to Alaska. I would buy that one. Maybe we'll wright one.

Chris White's book on cruising multihulls is a good read too.
