This wonderful old teaching manual has been out of print for nearly a century. Still very relevant for sailing vessels, it has chapters on signals, boat work, bends and hitches, knots and splicing, rope making, anchor work, compass and helm, rigging, etc.

Of the 392 pages, two-thirds are devoted to sailing vessels and the balance to steam vessels or subjects common to both, such as sheer and derrick work, storage, etc. A major style revision from the manuals of the 1800s.

Softcover, 6" × 9". Reprinted in 2003 as part of our Classic Reprint Series.
