Summary

Summary

Readers will recognize their boats, their fellow sailors & themselves in this lively collection of pieces from David Kasanof's "Fo'c's'le" column in WoodenBoat magazine. "Lighthearted insights about all sorts of nautical nuances abound in this entertaining book... Need a wind-direction indicator? Use your face, Kasanof advises. It's standard equipment, doesn't cost $279.95, & works most of the time." Cruising World "Our resident comic curmudgeon ('Courtesy afloat is as overrated as ratchet screwdrivers & any motion picture with subtitles') proves why he is allowed to continue writing the longest-running column in WoodenBoat magazine."
