Summary

Stress-free Motorboating is the answer to all single- or short-handed crews' prayers. Highly illustrated with step-by-step photographs, this unique handbook tackles the most common motorboating situations anyone cruising along the coast or river will have to manage.

Whether they are aboard a 35-footer, a sports runabout or a 60-foot displacement cruiser, this helpful guide demonstrates techniques helpful to all crews. It covers tricky procedures for getting off (and then back on) a marina berth, anchoring, mooring to a buoy, motoring in big seas, and even picking up a man overboard.

It includes essential advice about fuel monitoring, engine care and maintenance, looking after batteries, and many more issues specific to motorboats. After all, a motorboat's only means of propulsion is her engine.

Stress-free Motorboating will be a godsend to all motorboaters, whether crossing the Channel or just motoring along the coast, because the techniques of boat-handling are universal.
