How to avoid emergencies and handle life-threatening crises

Fresh-water boaters will find life-saving information on how to maintain control in emergency situations. Written specifically for powerboaters, this book details what to do when encountering heavy weather and on-board emergencies such as engine failure, falling overboard, or loss of position. Readers will also learn how to prevent accidents and catastrophes by learning how to identify storms before they arise.


“This book can help make the difference between an exciting but uneventful trip or a trip that shows up in the Coast Guard accident statistics.” —Bob McKeever, president National Water Safety Council
