The essential information you need - onboard and at your fingertips

On the water, when questions arise, there's no time to search through an exhaustive manual. The Captain's Quick Guides provide all the answers - fast. Based on the world's largest boating library, this laminated Quick Guide presents 14 colour panels of authoritative, concise information on on-board weather forecasting, designed for quick reference.

Charlie Wing received his Ph.D. in oceanography from MIT, where he later worked as a research scientist. Since then his career has been explaining how things work - teaching physics at Bowdoin College, founding America's first two do-it-yourself house-building schools (the Shelter Institute and Cornerstone), hosting a PBS series on energy conservation, and writing a dozen top-selling books on home building, home maintenance, and remodeling. Wing lived aboard a cruising sailboat for six years, during which time he wrote the first edition of this book on a solar-powered Macintosh computer.
