Overview

From the people behind the UK's leading sailing magazine for cruisers comes Crash Test Boat, a dramatic documentation of controlled sailing disasters which has the potential to save the lives of each and every seaman who buys it.

Crash Test Boat
is unique in its field, with no other title on the market aimed at explicitly revealing at first hand what happens when a boat encounters a major disaster. On the spot reporting with action photographs show what happens when typical family boats fall victim to eight different types of sailing disaster. How quickly does a cabin fill with water when the hull is holed? How do you control a gas leak or explosion? What should you do first when dealing with a dismasting?

By providing cruising and racing yachtsmen with vivid accounts of such extreme events, Crash Test Boat equips the reader with vital knowledge on what to do if disaster strikes and, ultimately, gives everyone on board a greater chance of survival if the boat is overcome.
