Practical Navigation for the Modern Boat owner


The complete navigation reference for beginners and experts alike - including GPS, chartplotting, radar and AIS. An excellent book that is easy to read and nicely mixes tradittional and modern navigation techniques - one that we can thoroughly recommend

Author: Pat Manley

The modern sailor needs a back up plan if the electrics on board fail, and Pat Manley delivers the tools to make this possible.  Boat owners need a book that covers all the electronic (modern) navigation, which develops the theme and introduces the traditional navigation as and when it is needed.

Practical Navigation for the Modern Boat Owner leads you through all the aspects of navigation of your boat in a logical order.  It has the unique combination of modern and traditional disciplines to boat navigation. Although the pencil and paper chart method will not be introduced until it is demonstrated this knowledge is vital.  This practical approach to the subject will ensure that although modern electronic methods remain at the forefront, readers will never lack in knowledge to navigate their boat safely in any circumstance.  Therefore the modern sailor will be equipped with all the necessary skills.

  Topics covered include:

     * GPS – satellites, receivers and position
     * Shape of the Earth – distance and direction
     * Finding your Position – where am I now?
     * Passage Planning – choice of routes hazards and harbours of refuge
     * Radar
     * Personal Computers – AIS on a PC and computers for navigation

A website featuring simulators accompanies 'Practical Navigation for the Modern Boat Owner' adding a further dimension to an all-inclusive book:
sailors can test their skills whilst they are learning.  The website – hosted by Fernhurst - will feature an array of simulators including GPS, radar, AIS and Chartplotter.

Practical Navigation for the Modern Boat Owner is like having your very own skipper on your bookshelf.
