Boat Navigation for the Rest of Us: Finding Your Way by Eye and Electronics by Bill Brogdon, Rob Groves(Illustrator)

The popular texts would have us navigate our small boats using the same techniques found on an aircraft carrier. But these elaborately precise methods just don't work in the bouncy, wet, cramped cockpit of a typical pleasure craft. This is the first book to teach small-boat navigation the way most people actually navigate, combining electronic aids like radar, GPS, and Loran with commonsense visual piloting and seat-of-the-pants chartwork. It explains in plain, simple language exactly how to find where you are and get where you want to go with a minimum of fuss, and contains many useful but relatively unpublicized methods specifically designed for use aboard the nation's 20 million small power- and sailboats.

Chapman Piloting : Seamanship & Boat Handling (Chapman Piloting Seamanship and Boat Handling, 63rd Ed)

When Chapman Piloting lands on your doorstep--all 656 pages of it--it's easy to feel daunted. Have faith, sailor. Now in its 63rd edition, Charles Frederic Chapman's masterpiece is a boater's bible. Indeed, one Amazon.com customer raves, "if you could take a class called Boating 101, this would be the textbook." It's more than just a basic text, however; it's a complete curriculum of nautical knowledge, from knots to navigation, docking to distress calls, plus etiquette, protocol, and terminology for powerboaters and sailors alike. Accessible to the beginner, Chapman Piloting is an essential reference for even the most experienced sailor. A necessary component of any nautical library. Highly recommended. --M. Stein
