seriously planning a sailing voyage...
Pinney's Ready For Sea! is a practical, thorough, "user
friendly" guide to outfitting a cruising sailboat and
preparing oneself for the joy of extended sail journeys, or
living abroad on a cruise. Individual chapters address safety
on the waves; every part of a sailboat from sails to galley;
mechanical considerations; and much more. Enhanced with
illustrations by Bruce Bingham, Ready For Sea! is a
"must-read" for anyone seriously planning a sailing
voyage, whether it be a simple day-trip excursion or an around
the world adventure.
