About This Item

Camden, Maine: International Marine, 1987. 228 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H) - glazed pictorial boards. B&w photographs, maps, drawings, diagrams. "The bulk of the world's cruising fleet emanates from non-coral areas and carries out most of its cruising within coral waters. There is therefore a positive need to understand the realities: the seasons of trade winds; the behaviour of destructive winds; the special foods to be found in the tropics; the dangers of coral waters and the special problems of navigating and anchoring there. Cruising in coral is different. Not terrifyingly so, as some sailing authors might have you believe, but different enough to warrant a general overhaul of nautical attitudes and practices as well as gaining general knowledge pertinent to that environment." Contents: Introduction; The Coral Reef; The Best Boat in Coral; Navigating in Coral Waters; Anchoring in Coral; Trade Winds; Destructive Winds; Wet Season Layover; Tropical Maintenance; Staying Healthy; Swimming and Diving; Fishing; Preparing Fish for Cooking; Cooking Ashore; Preserving Food without Refrigeration; Tropical Fruits and Vegetables; The Coconut; Emergency Repairs and Salvage; Survival; Survival Navigation; Coral Communities; Index. Tiny bump at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing to glossy boards, light scuff line down rear board. . Hard Cover. Very Good-/No Jacket.
