Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

It's not a good project if you don't draw blood.

"Marine" is latin for double the price.

Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

The art of seamanship is keeping yourself in a position where you don't really need seamanship skills.

See Vigor's "Black Box" ➥ The Art of Seamanship: Safety and Philosophy

Are you telling me that “The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead”* is out of date?

Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

Keep body parts away from objects that move, cut, grind, or are under a heavy load.

Examples: between boat and dock, standing on the inside of line under stress around a block or winch, less than a couple of inches away from anything sharp connected to a motor, head above boom level when a gybe is a possibility.

I don't know; I haven't read the book.
However, from the review:

Top 10 Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack

1. Organize before they rise!
2. They feel no fear, why should you?
3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
4. Blades don’t need reloading.
5. Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it.
7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
9. No place is safe, only safer.
10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat lives on.

There are only two important rules for cruisers. 1) keep the water on the outside, 2) don't bump into anything hard.

Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

Experience is a really good teacher - However, learning from other's mistakes is also good. Sail fast, live slow.
