Both racing and cruising yachts are covered, and also trailerable multihulls.
    Seamanship is not a black and white skill. It is an evolution of knowledge through experience and learning from others, and it is intensely situational in application.
    This book is drawn from the author's personal index of "how-to's". It has grown through experience and from the input of others. It will be a most useful asset to anyone sailing or contemplating ownership of a multihull yacht.
