Product Description

This handy Dictionary of Nautical Acronyms and Abbreviations contains a listing of all the acronyms, abbreviations and truncations that recreational boaters encounter in nautical magazine articles, books, instruction manuals and Coast Guard reports. A reference such as this has never been published before.

Part I, with 550 entries with 28 illustrations, is an alphabetical listing of abbreviations, along with an explanation of each.

Part II, with 500 entries lists all the abbreviations used on the government's nautical charts

'The maritime world is full of combinations of letters standing for something. Some of them we need to know, others are curiosities. But Launer, who has been boating since childhood, said he saw a need when he came across abbreviations strange to him. Then followed two years of collecting every abbreviation he could find.'
- Newark Star Ledger
