Book Description

The Skipper's Emergency Handbook is a handy waterproof guide that provides solutions to a range of nautical emergencies for coastal and offshore sailors so that they can head off problems before they become dire. Arranged in topics, it takes the reader through the particular problem by means of flow charts, so they are guided to take the most appropriate action first. Having identified the action needed, expanded text then explains how to carry out the procedure. Topics include abandon ship, broken boom, collision, dismasting, engine failure, fire, fog, holing, heavy weather, junk rigs, leaks, lightening strikes, man overboard, medical emergencies, propeller problems, sail damage, steering gear, towing. With a clear head and this vital reference, the reader will possess the information needed to bring vessel and crew safely back to shore.
