Boat Docking - the book [Read this about PDF's: These are much larger files than the standard HTML versions, but they print better and might be more suitable for quick reference aboard your boat. Some of the newer web browsers won't download them automatically, unfortunately (they call this "progress"), in which case right-click on the link and follow the prompts. You will want something like "Save target as..." or "Save link as..."

Reading them also requires of course the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.]
