Covering boating in general, the basic Boating Guide includes a pre-departure checklist and emergency procedures. Celestial Navigation is an easy guide to determining position using the sun and stars. Dead reckoning, true-magnetic and compass relationships are a few of the subjects of the Coastwise Piloting QRC. A time, distance and speed calculator and bearing gauge are included.
