Emphasizing the visual and graphic techniques of navigation, Boater's Bowditch is a small-boat adaptation of the world's most trusted navigation reference, the U.S. government's American Practical Navigator ("Bowditch" for short).

Now in handy paperback with hundreds of new diagrams and photographs, including a 16-page color insert, this book is a pleasure to use. It covers piloting, celestial navigation, marine weather, and all modern methods of electronic navigation, such as GPS and electronic charts. The Boater's Bowditch is an indispensable resource for beginning and advanced navigators, whether in sail- or powerboats, inshore or offshore.
