Books and Book Reviews


Just released!

More books by us (!)

by (us!) Capt. Alex Blackwell & Capt. Daria Blackwell

Unless you are far offshore, at some point or another you are going to need to park your boat. Just like knowing how to stop your car before you start is perhaps the most important part of driving, we feel that anchoring is perhaps the most important skill you can and should acquire in boating. 226 pages, 182 Illustrations

Happy Hooking is a very readable book loaded with valuable information on anchoring tackle, anchoring technique, tying up and rafting, anchoring etiquette, as well as the occasional anecdote - simply stated a must have!

CoastalBoating.net is dedicated to the joy of coastal boating, coastal sailing, coastal cruising, and coastal racing. The primary objective of this site is to empower sailors and those who would like to be sailors to go out and enjoy their sport and passtime - to enjoy boating in whatever form it takes for the sake of boating.

Coastal Boating provides the best all around experience for boaters who would like a local resource guide that also covers local news, including race results, and seamanship skills. It is not intended to prepare people for the great offshore experience: there are plenty of resources out there for that. It is for all of the rest of us who may dream about a big adventure yet find ourselves perfectly content, if not driven, to experience the waters in our own territory to the fullest.

Please be aware that boating, as most other water sports, can be dangerous. You should not attempt it without first receiving competent instruction. Coastal Boating and Knowledge Clinic Limited will not accept any liability whatsoever related to content on our website.
