Description - Offshore Sailing: 200 Essential Passagemaking Tips by William G. Seifert
This is a compilation of tried and true boat projects plus tips on boat handling, navigation, galley, and other aspects of sailing offshore. It focuses on things that work and are not generally seen in other books. In his 100,000 offshore miles and his 30 years as a boatbuilder and professional yacht manager, Bill Seifert has seen what works and what doesn't, and has created what's probably the world's largest photographic library of useful, workable solutions for boat design, construction, equipment, and seamanship dilemmas.
