Frequently Asked Questions

What are the System Requirements for this Manual?

Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT4, Me, 2000, XP or Vista, and Internet Explorer 4 or later installed.

The System Requirements state Microsoft Windows. Will the Manual work on a Mac?

The .exe files on the CDs can only be opened in Windows. If you have Bootcamp or other software to make your Mac work on dual platforms, then yes, it is possible.

Do you plan to create a Mac version of the Manual?

When developing The Boating Bible Manual of Seamanship, we chose to output it as executable files (.exe) because it gave us the best control over the content. The text, illustrations, video clips and animations were brought together first using DreamWeaver to create pages which were then compressed and compiled into the .exe format.

In the future we expect to develop some form of membership or community site where access to the content would be password protected. When this happens, we will let you know.
