Description
Don't expect Dave Zobel's Bent Book of Boat Speak to help you pass a seamanship course -- its aim is to amuse more than inform. Nevertheless, the book helps novices get past the embarrassing "wrap-that-thing-around-that-thingy-over-there" stage.<P>Divided into usage sections covering (since you don't know their names anyway) "Wrinkly Things, " "Damp Things, " "Soggy Things, " "Magical Things, " "Icky Things, " "Living Things, " and "Invisible Things, " this book is a maniacal tour of the nautical world.<P>D Zobel's Bent Book of Boat Speak also gives you illustrated (and bent) help understanding the Rules of the Road, The Buoyage System, and the Points of the Compass. This humorous guide is likely to be a frequent gift from long-suffering shipmates to both nautical newbies and fluent old salts.
