New book on finding a cruising boatCharlie Doane, marine author and contributing writer to Ocean Navigator, has just published a book called The Modern Cruising Sailboat. It is a 391-compendium of all things cruising sailboat. The book can either help you fine-tune your present cruising boat, or help you find the cruising vessel that fits your needs.
Doane has also launched a blog called Wave Train which he bills as "A blog about cruising sailboats and other aquatic miracles." Knowing Doanes' wide-ranging interests and puckish sense of humor, I'm sure you'll enjoy taking a look.
