Anyone dreaming about owning an affordable sailboat will find the information in this book to be essential. Jerry Caldwell shows how cruising on a small but properly equipped boat that can be kept at home and towed to the water behind the family car is a satisfying and not very costly exercise. Sailors and prospective boat buyers will learn to evaluate boats in the 22- to 26-foot range, such as the Catalina, Hunter and MacGregor, and the equipment and accessories that will enable them to sail BIG on a small sailboat far more easily and for less money than you can "sail small" on a big sailboat. Throughout the book the emphasis is on careful planning and selection of boat and accessories to get the most enjoyment from the least investment. Now in its third edition, the book has been updated and expanded to include several new models, including the Com-Pac, Etap, Rhodes and the Santana, and a new chapter on safe and smart trailering and ramp launching.
