Synopsis

Knots, Splices, and Line Handling Captain's Quick Guides by Charlie Wing

This book contains the essential information every boater needs - onboard and at your fingertips. On the water, when questions arise, there is no time to spend searching through an exhaustive manual. The Captain's QuickGuides provide all the answers - fast. Drawn from the world's largest boating library, each laminated QuickGuide presents 14 color panels of authoritative, concise information on a critical topic. This on-the-spot reference is ideal for boaters who need a convenient, accessible, and utterly streamlined information resource. Designed for onboard quick reference each QuickGuide includes: 14 panels of concise information yet has a folded size of just 4 x 9 ; hinged, laminated construction makes them durable and waterproof; carefully organized and richly illustrated in color for instant, easy answers; and, at-your-fingertips format ideal for emergency situations. This book is just right for tight quarters, where space is an issue.
