Sailing Books

SAILING BOOKSSale price of each book includes shipping
I am selling my books due to heart troubles stopping me from cruising and need to get rid of them. I would like it to go to good sailors.
Most of these books are in excellent condition like brand new; some with a few marks in them where I made notes and highlights (no charge)

Re: Sailing Books

Not to criticize the OP but perhaps the next book seller here on CF will offer us a chance to match the prices paid by the used book store+shipping.
