Boat Handling 1 and 2


Handling a boat properly is the single greatest indication of good seamanship, not handling it properly discloses the novice. These two disks cover boat handling in all its forms - under sail alone, under motor, in storms, in calms. Two must-read subjects are spinnaker handling and the latest approved method of recovering a man overboard (MOB).
