All boaters fear a storm at sea and this book shows you how to weather one safely. Any boater who leaves the harbor is eventually going to end up in rough weather. A few will find themselves in genuinely life-threatening situations. To respond correctly, you need more than grit. You need a properly equipped, seaworthy boat, and you need to have mastered a body of specialised knowledge and techniques rarely covered in the boating press. An accomplished naval architect, Roger Marshall first concentrates on the boat - how to select and modify a boat with heavy weather in mind.
