Well-known author and sailor, Doug Logan, sets down his rare commonsense approach to being on the water, with his accumulation of smart tricks from a lifetime of devotion to boating and sailing. In the warm voice of a deeply knowledgeable friend, Doug describes the thoughts of an experienced boat operator handling the boat as they head out into open water, like a cop on the beat, looking for trouble on the gauges, in the ship channel, keeping the crew involved. He addresses the seamanship needed to safely and joyously operate a small boat. With a lifetime of experience on boats, Doug has his favorite and most basic must-haves on a boat, not necessarily the usual GPS or the radar: he has a knife close to hand, a selection of rope, a bucket, and he can inspire every sailor, even the saltiest dockrat, to know which simple tools to have aboard, on powerboats and sailboats alike. More than how-to go boating, Doug writes for people who love boats, particularly sailboats, and describes the skills and sensibilities that a life around boats can help develop--things like self-reliance, adaptability, a sense of balance between daring and humility, and an appreciation of our place in the grand scheme. His collection of yarns, prescriptions, lists, avowals, and explorations establishes a poetic reverence for the life in a small boat on the water.
