Find a small cruising sailboat and restore it to pristine condition on a budget that won't sink your budget Small, trailererable cruising sailboats are more popular than ever as mooring spaces dwindle and marina dockage and winter storage costs soar. Fix It and Sail helps you discover boatloads of fun far less than a single ski weekend or golf club membership. Veteran sailor and journalist Brian Gilbert shows you how to select and inspect a boat, then restore it from keel to rigging. Gilbert's clear, step-by-step instructions guide you through every phase of the restoration process from repairing keels, hulls, ports, and cabins to painting, wiring, and sealing. You'll learn how to evaluate, repair and replace hardware, upholstery, canvaswork, and more. Profusely illustrated appendices give you a vivid picture of the costs, tasks, and labor involved in an actual restoration project.

A down to earth, wealthy and industrious young woman, who was quite fond and compassionate for her elderly uncle, became mired in down in his Murder. This uncle is the source of her original wealth and was to name her in his will. She was not only a suspect; she became the subject of mortal danger from others who conspired to receive her part of his estate. Her Uncle Stan always tried to push her and other close relatives into accomplishing great things. In his elder and sickly years Jill continued catering to her uncle by visiting him and frequently reading adventures of sailing the Caribbean to him and pretending they were the participants. On his death he continued challenging her and others, in his will, and in this case to become sailors, as in their lounge chair adventures. To receive an additional portion of the inheritance she and others were challenged to learn to sail and single hand a sizable sailboat from North Florida to Key West but sabotage was on the menu.

'Can I drive the car?' is a familiar refrain for most parents. But in dealing with this issue of control, trust and training, is there a lesson to be learnt, a lesson that can be applied by leaders in the business environment? Leadership trainer Keith Coats thinks so, and has written a witty and instructive book that draws on everyday events in the life of his family, pointing out how these experiences translate into important lessons in leadership. Whether they are issues of control or communication, inspiration or loyalty, or simply getting through the tough times, Coats explores the universal lessons we learn as parents and shows how to apply them in the boardroom, the office or the factory.

*This is THE book on the aero- and hydromechanics of sailing.*Contains full and scientifically justified descriptions of the dependence of the performance of sailing yachts on their configuration and the underlying physical mechanisms.*Bridges the gap between the few existing books on the aero- and hydrodynamics of sailing and the more popular books that deal with the "what and how" but not with the "why" of sailing yacht configurations and boat trim.*New edition that also covers the recently evolved technology of foiling.REVIEWS (OF THE 1ST EDITION):From the December 2015 issue of the Dutch sailing magazine "Zeilen" (translated):"Decades of research and development in fluid dynamics, but also his experience as a cruising yachtsman, have put author Joop Slooff in the position to write a new standard work on the behavior of keel yachts in wind and water. In his preface the author states that it is his ambition to bridge the gap between the few existing scientific books on the aero- and hydrodynamics of sailing and the more popular books that describe the 'what' and 'how' but not so much the 'why' of boat trim. For this purpose the author treats the basic principles of the forces acting on a sailing yacht, but he describes also how these principles translate to the boat and its sails.... In the world of sailing Slooff is known for his involvement in the development of the winged keel of the America's Cup winning yacht Australia II. His book is an excellent work for the dedicated yachtsman who is interested in the 'why' and the scientific background of the behavior of his or her boat in wind and water".Comment (Dec. 2015) by Edward Canepa, assistant professor in Fluid Machinery at the University of Genova (Italy):"For some years I'm teaching a course on "Sailing Yacht Design" in the master class of yacht design. Actually, I've found your book the best one about physics of a sailing yacht I've ever read". Comment (Dec. 2015) by Frank Woodward, former computational fluid dynamicist at the Boeing Company and Analytical Methods Inc., and a cruising yachtsman (retired):"...very impressed, no wonder it took so long. It is 'everything I ever wanted to know about sailing but was afraid to ask' !"

Author: J.W. Slooff
How and why does sail boat performance depend on the configuration and trim of boat and sails? This book provides the yachtsman with answers in a relatively straightforward account of the physical mechanisms of sailing. It presents an accessible overview of the fluid dynamic aspects of sailing and sailing technology, addressing both aeromechanics and hydromechanics. Readers are provided with the basic principles of physics and general mechanics that will assist their understanding of the fluid mechanics of sailing yachts. Rich appendices cover not only in-depth,mathematical-physical treatments and derivations for those wishing to explore further, but also helpful summaries of basic mathematical notions for those wishing to refresh their knowledge. This work explores keel yachts, specifically single-masted mono-hulls with ‘fore-and-aft’, Bermuda-rigged sails. However, much of it is applicable to other types of sailing vessels such as multi-hulls, yachts with multiple masts, windsurf boards and the like. Yachtsmen, yacht designers and professionals of sailing technology will all find something of interest in this work which provides explanations of the mechanics of sailing in a way that is scientifically justified, whilst remaining appealing to those wishing to use their knowledge on-board a sailing vessel. For some years I’m teaching a course on “Sailing Yacht Design” in the master class of yacht design. Actually, I’ve found your book the best one about physics of a sailing yacht I’ve ever read.
