INTRODUCTION

This book is written for cruising sailors, including those who are now cruising, those who are preparing for long-distance sailing, and for those who dream.

Anyone who has been out cruising for more than a few months will be familiar with the subjects covered here, and will probably have some better or at least different ways of doing things. There is no lack of strong opinion among cruising sailors when it comes to marine gear and materials, systems and techniques, but there is also a curiosity and a willingness to learn and use better ways. Every time I see how someone else does something, I learn - and so I hope this book will provide veteran cruising sailors with at least a few new ideas.
