Chapman's indispensable "rule book" for boaters-now completely updated and thoroughly revamped, with all-new full color illustrations, a fresh contemporary design, and up-to-date information on boating etiquette.

Here is the volume for anyone who wants to know every aspect of boating custom, from displaying pennants to naming conventions to rules on the right of way. It's freshly revised and better than ever, brightened up with great color images. Not a detail is missed: harbor manners, dockside behavior, radio protocol, how to carry out the ship's daily routine, and even what do in a yacht club cruise. While yachting is no longer a formal activity, a mariner's good conduct not only shows consideration for others, but also affects boating safety. By following the Chapman's quality advice, anyone can avoid the dreaded faux pas.
