The Capable Cruiser is a logical extension of the Pardeys' The Self-Sufficient Sailor (978-0964603677), with more emphasis on seamanship underway, including careful analysis of extreme anchoring situations and solutions for mitigating them. Underlying each and every chapter is the warmth and encouragement that spurred Herb McCormick, former editor of Cruising World magazine, to label Lin and Larry Pardey the enablers. This revised and expanded third edition of a cruising classic includes 10 completely new chapters with such advice as: 16 ways to encourage your lover (partner) to share your dream; strategies for turning sudden engine failure into a minor incident; choosing safety equipment and repairing rigging at sea. All of the original chapters have been updated to ensure that the information will be helpful for everyone who dreams of cruising-whether now or in the near future.

The pleasures and adventures of cruising under sail are amazingly affordable, say Lin and Larry Pardey. But to keep your dream on budget, you have to decide: Are you a cruiser or a consumer? In this book, a logical successor to their Self-Sufficient Sailor and Capable Cruiser, they discuss making your getaway plans, finding a truly affordable boat, keeping your outfitting costs and maintenance time under control, and learning to feel confident as you cruise farther afield. Their comparison of the gear considered necessary by many yachting experts and the gear carried by several cost-conscious cruisers will help you guage wheter you are buying the true necessities or overloading your boat with high-tech items that can break down and steal your sense of confidence offshore. The chapters on getting the most from your cruising funds, the attributes of successful long-term voyagers, how to upgrade your boat with your own hands, plus answers to the then questions most frequently asked by potential cruisers will help you prepare to explore under sail. as Lin and Larry explain, "The decisions you make now will determine if yu'll come back from your cruise feeling more empowered or more enslaved by today's consumer society."

With this book, anyone can learn to design, make, repair, improve, and maintain sails. Emphasizing the handwork that distinguishes the highest-quality, most durable sails, Marino tells you how to select a rig, introduces you to sail shape and theory, and then shows you step by step, with the help of 700 detailed illustrations, how to sew patches, hand sew rings, fix tears or frayed edges, and stitch seams, not to mention how to make your own sails, canvas sailcovers, and sailbags from scratch. His bias is toward sturdy sails for daysailing and cruising, built of low-tech materials you can repair with a few simple tools. But this book is more than a comprehensive apprenticeship; it is also an illustrated tour of the world's rig and sail types, both contemporary and historical - a visual feast for the sailor as well as an indispensable guide for the mariner.
