Continuous Update and Improvement

One of the most wonderful things about offshore sailing is that we never know it all. In fact, the more we learn and the more years we spend voyaging, the more we realize that we have more to learn. With Online Books, we can, and do, revise and improve constantly.

The date of the last update is shown in the byline area of every chapter.

And I do mean constantly—barely a day goes by that we don’t change or improve a chapter based on new wisdom. 


Our Online Books are interactive so when you, the reader, have a question or a suggestion for a better way to do things, you can contribute that as a comment.

So our Online Books are not just our wisdom but also include that of hundreds of others:

  • experienced voyagers,
  • boatbuilders,
  • and engineers;

far more wisdom than any one person could accumulate in a lifetime.

The Best of Both Worlds

But what if you don’t have internet? Well, these days most of us have access to internet most of the time, even when out voyaging, and particularly when we would actually want to be reading our books.

Having said that, we have a way for you to download the Online Books for offline reading right here.
