It's enough to worry about your own responses without worrying about the safety of your boat. This book explains feature by feature how you can refit your boat for worry-free bluewater voyaging. Take the unique diagnostic questionnaire to determine whether your boat is capable of offshore sailing, then let John Vigor show you step by step how to get there, as he covers everything from structural modifications and reinforcements to rigging, engines, systems, and gear. Whether you're planning an offshore voyage or just dreaming of one, this book is the perfect guide. Vigor's practical wisdom gives you the know-how and confidence to prepare your boat for the sea; not only hands us practical advice in a clear format but also the hope that an offshore voyage is fully within our grasp if we are willing to follow his roadmap. Vigor's questionnaire offers hard-to-find, honest evaluations of whether or not a boat is bluewater capable. This clear, objective reference will make fearless, prudent skippers.
