  2. Encourage Solutions

    It is extremely hard to dislike this video but 2 people have. Is it other sailboat video producers? Weird !

  3. LOL putting the books on the cat hahah

  4. I just love you guys!

  5. Not really a book but US chart number 1 is a great reference. Also I use Calders marine Diesel Engines more than the one you mention. But both are essential.

  6. Fairwind & Godspeed

    I could never part with my copy of Lin Pardey’s “The Care and Feeding of Sailing Crew”.

  7. What an amazing video! Thanks a lot!

  8. (adrift 76 day lost at sea ) No doubt you have already read this book.

  9. I don't understand who would thumbs down this video??

  13. Great recommendations. Just bought the Essex ebook. Btw your stargazing links are labeled backwards, UK vs us.
