Description - Boat Handling Under Power by Robert J. Sweet

This laminated fold-out guide provides remarkably thorough coverage of its topic in a durable, weatherproof, convenient, instantly accessible and highly graphic format. Its fourteen panels of content (plus front and back covers) fold up to just 4" by 9" for convenient wheelhouse or nav station stowage, and the patented hinged laminations allow multiple folded display options, so that just the panels of immediate interest are visible at any particular time. This feature, and the product's complete waterproof durability, make it ideal for boating use. A hole-punched tab allows the product to be hung from a peg in the store or on the boat if desired. Boat Handling Under Power has everything a boater needs for smart maneuvering of a powerboat or auxiliary sailboat, including: How boats handle seas; Close-quarters maneuvering; Trimming for comfort and control; Docking a power- or sailboat; Steering with outboard, inboard/outdrive, and inboard engines; Handling heavy seas; Aggressively priced, carefully thought out, and painstakingly prepared, this is a highly useful, intensely graphic digest of nautical knowledge.
