Educational Books

I was wandering what the best all around book would be for understanding the water and sailboats in general. Basically what book would you recommend for a new liveaboard sailor.
Thanks.

I found in Nigel Calder's "Cruising Handbook: A Compendium for Coastal and Offshore Sailors" a valuable resource.

Re: Educational Books

Dashew's "Circumnavigator's Handbook" has a lot of good advice in it. You don't have to agree with everything, but they take reasoned positions and discuss a variety of options.

Re: Educational Books

Canyonbat recommended this on another thread. Looks good to me...

Stress Free Sailing by Duncan Wells. The kindle version even has video! Other books will teach you sailing. This book will teach you how to look like a pro around the docks. Our all-time favorite.

https://www.amazon.com/Stress-free-S...7434/ref=nodl_

Here's also a liveaboard book:
The Essentials of Living Aboard a Boat by Mark Nicholas

https://www.amazon.com/Essentials-Li...EFK3VJKZ5KDT0R

Good luck,
