Book Description: Whether crew, skipper or mate, and whether stepping aboard for a week, a year or a lifetime, this title is a useful companion to take along. No matter what the problem is: storing-up or getting along with the skipper, disposing of rubbish, amusing and educating the children or deciding what to take along when crewing, all the information needed is here. Do you ever wonder how to earn money as you go? Fix the heads or equip the galley? Cope with heart attack, malaria or simple sunburn? Wash clothes using the minimum of fresh water? Gut the fish you have landed or open a coconut? This book gives the answers to these questions.
