Emphasizing the visual and graphic techniques of navigation, "Boater's Bowditch" is a small-boat adaptation of the pre-eminent navigation reference for commercial and naval sailors, the U.S. government's "American Practical Navigator" ("Bowditch" for short, after the editor and writer of the first edition published in 1802). With hundreds of diagrams and photographs, this handy book is an indispensable resource for beginning and advanced navigators. It explains in plain English all the basic and most practical concepts and techniques used by professional navigators. It's the first truly comprehensive guide to modern navigation tools such as GPS and electronic charts."Boater's Bowditch" fulfills Nathaniel Bowditch's original vow "to put down in the book nothing I can't teach the crew." "What John Wycliffe did to the Bible in the 14th century, Hubbard has done to the "American Practical Navigator", bringing it down to a level most people can understand." - "Ocean Navigator". 'Hubbard has done an excellent job. I have been operating small boats on our waters for at least the last 20 years, and virtually every chapter told me something that was not only interesting but in many cases new to me - "Greenwich Time". 'If you have been put off by navigation texts in the past, here is one which was intended to make navigation easy and understandable' - "Dockside". 'It covers every essential element of navigation know-how in clear, concise explanations...Novices and experienced sailors alike will appreciate the book's logical organization' - "Mariner".
