Powerboating: The RIB and Sportsboat Handbook
Powerboating is the perfect reference for anyone using a powerboat, whether you are just starting or need a refresher. The book starts before you even get on the water with descriptions of types of boat, engine and trailer along with key advice about how to get the right combinations for your needs. Once on the water, there are hints and exercises to develop boat handling and what to do when you have to stop a jetty, buoy or with an anchor. An introduction to navigation and tides will enable the powerboat to travel securely whilst developing their navigation skills, Critical safety issues which as a Man Overboard, traveling at night and First Aid are covered in considerable detail and with clear photographs.
