Stress-Free Motorboating: Single and Short-Handed Techniques

Stress-free Motorboating is the answer to all single- or short-handed crews' prayers. Highly illustrated with step-by-step photographs, this highly practical handbook tackles the most common motorboating scenarios anyone will ever have to manage, whether cruising along a river or around the coast. The author covers groundbreaking and dependable procedures for getting off (and then back on to) a berth, anchoring, picking up mooring buoys, boat-handling in tides, fast-flowing rivers, managing locks and even picking up a man overboard. QR codes link to helpful instructional action videos to clarify the procedurees, and invaluable advice is given about fuel monitoring, engine care and maintenance - in fact all the essential issues that affect motorboats. Whether you're aboard a 60-foot displacement cruiser, crossing the Channel or pottering along a river or coast, Stress-Free Motorboating will make life aboard that much easier - and with less stress comes more enjoyment for everyone.
