This book is not only a “How To” it’s a very good insight on how things really are once you get out on the big sea. The author does a great job by not leading you on that everything is fantastic all the time and tells it like it is. The “I must Confess…” are great additions and I found myself sometimes skipping ahead just to read some of those. I bought this book because I was interested in the profession and couldn’t find anything worth reading about it. This is the book to read! And after reading it, I am certain that I am going to Ft. Lauderdale and becoming a Yacht Stew.
