Description


“Written for the sailor, not the scholar. Rousmaniere leaves out the chaff and gives us just the wheat. Astonishingly comprehensive and slender enough to carry aboard.” —Don Casey, author of This Old Boat


From "abaft" to "Zulu," including terms as new as "bowrider" and as old as "starboard," here is the language of pleasure boating—clearly defined terms that today's sailors and powerboaters rely on to make their way safely and happily upon America's coastal waters.

About the Author


John Rousmaniere has sailed in over 35,000 miles of offshore voyaging and racing. He crewed on the 48-foot Toscana in the fateful Fastnet Race of 1979.
