Heavy Weather Powerboating
This book is the equivalent on powerboating to the classic sailing reference book, Heavy Weather Sailing. Like Heavy Weather Sailing it has chapters on the theory or operating powerboats in rough seas as well as heavy weather experiences (and the lessons learned). Edited by Hugo Montgomery-Swan (Editor of RIB International Magazine) it has contributions from all the leading powerboating names, from record-breakers to endurance achievers to instructors and trainers, and RNLI coxwains. This book will become the powerboating standard reference for heavy weather operation.
