by Captain Herman
This book does not teach you how to fish.
This book does not teach you how to run your boat.
This book simply explains how to use that Emergency Equipment you are required to carry on board and what you must know to train your crew. If you train and practice these emergency routines, you will be better prepared and better focused to minimize dangers while at sea.
And that might ultimately save your life.
