About this product
- DescriptionEvery boatowner needs to maeuvre their boat in harbour - whether in their home marina or when visiting ather marina along the coast. And it's when entering or leaving harbour that good boat handling skills have to be faultless - otherwise expensive damage can ensue. This unique step by step photographic book will show a helmsman exactly where to position the boat (and what action to apply to a wheel, tiller or throttle lever) in order to place it there. With brakes, and often with wind and tide to contend with, it can be a tricky exercise. This is the book that will act as an instructor alongside the vice or nervous experienced helmsman every step of the way, showing exactly what to do in each situation - berthing alongside with an onshore wind; an offshore wind; with a favourable tide; a contrary tide; with both wind and tide acting together or against etc. Bird's eye step-by-step photos show exactly what action to take. A unique handbook, Harbour Maeuvres Step by Step covers in great detail everything needed to master this essential skill.
