Books for Boaters: Seaworthy

November 25, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

A new book of lessons learned from 20 years of boating mishaps, as chronicled by Robert J. Adriance, looks like a great gift for anyone who spends time on the water. Adriance has been writer and editor of BoatU.S.’s quarterly publication Seaworthy, and he’s kept a running record of all the things that can possibly go wrong at sea. The book, apparently focused on boats in the salt, looks like a pretty good read from the jacket copy. “Here, distilled between one set of covers, is the ultimate boater’s guide to preventing, responding to, and surviving accidents under power or sail, including hurricane damage, lightning strikes, collisions, fires, groundings, sinkings, crew overboard, dismastings, and more.”
