"Sailors' Secrets is a distillation of boating wisdom unmatched by any other. . . . If I were just starting to collect nautical books, I'd think seriously about getting this one first. I found something new and interesting on every page."--Living Aboard

"A delightful, dual-purpose kind of book. You can sit down and read through it for pleasure [and] it makes a fine reference."--Mariner's Log (Houston)

"This treasure chest of useful advice is offered in bite-size tidbits that will keep the reader coming back for more."--The Log (San Diego)

Sailors' Secrets contains over 1,000 tips, suggestions, evaluations, and nuggets of hard-won advice from more than 300 seasoned veterans.

Instructive, humorous, biting, and challenging, Sailors' Secrets can be opened anywhere and enjoyed. Its wide-ranging chapters cover routine maintenance, understanding weather, safety at sea, storm strategies, piloting, engine troubleshooting, gear and outfitting, and simple solutions to complex problems.

Michael Badham and Robby Robinson have created the nautical equivalent of an experts' forum.
