Description: This book is for owners, crew, boatbuyers, charterers, chandlers, builders, repairers, designers, draughtsmen
and students. In fact, for anyone concerned with boats and ships. One of its most valuable uses is saving time
and trouble when specifying anything. By simply quoting a page anyone can order equipment without having
to look up the correct size and write out lengthy details. An owner can phone a marina or chandler and simply
say: Tut a new anchor on my boat. Size as specified in Boat Data Book\ Designers can reduce long lists of
rigging to: 'As detailed in Boat Data Book, page 115, column for yachts between 9 m and 11 m\ Anyone buying
a boat can check the standard of its equipment by referring to the hsts in this book. There is a widespread
practice of fitting boats with totally inadequate anchors, chain, winches and so on. Many second-hand boats
offered for sale are found to have inadequate safety gear, and much of what is on board is often out of date.
Reference to pages 26 to 35 will show what is needed. When designing or acquiring a boat it is important
to check dimensions of berths, galley top heights and so on. There is a tendency also to save on building
costs by fitting furniture which is under-size and as a result inconvenient, besides being uncomfortable to use.
Chapter 6 on Design gives many basic dimensions, standard, recommended minimum sizes and so on.
