Summary

More than ever, boaters need a single comprehensive reference that combines the best traditions of seamanship with cutting-edge practices, gear, and technology. That's why, for nearly a century, Chapman Piloting & Seamanship has remained the most respected and widely used guide for boating under power and sail. No other book on the subject is more current or complete. This 67th revised edition is not only fully updated, it is also enhanced in fundamental ways. Key additions include a new chapter on inboard diesel and gasoline engines; how-to maintenance information for outboard, sterndrive, and inboard engines; a complete integration of the tools and techniques of electronic navigation (GPS, chartplotters, and radar) with Chapman's unsurpassed treatment of traditional chart-and-compass piloting skills; improved coverage of sailing theory and sail-handling systems; updated techniques for rescuing a person overboard and administering CPR; and the latest information on new anchor designs, safety gear, rope, hardware, and communications.
 
You'll also find information about weather, tides, aids to navigation, and more, including:
  • Explanations of the laws, regulations, fees, and equipment requirements governing the nation's waterways. No other book is more current than Chapman in this regard
  • 1,500 all-color photos, charts, and drawings
  • Updated references for government publications, registration and safety information, and more, both in print and online

Anyone who sets forth on the water needs this indispensable volume.
