This revised edition of RYA Stability and Buoyancy (which includes a glossary of terms, explaining all the technical jargon) deals with everything relating to these issues and also includes hazards common to most boats, including:

• Bad loading
• Breaking waves
• Resonant rolling
• Broaching in a following sea
• Characteristics of different boat types, (i.e. sailing dinghies, small catamarans, offshore and coastal monohull sailing boats)
• Maximum safe heel angle

If you intend going afloat, in whatever type of boat or water, this book will give you basic knowledge of the principles of buoyancy and stability, the related hazards that you may encounter and lists the Do's and Don'ts of the subject. Although too small to be exhaustive, this book nevertheless gives sufficient information to enable skippers to gain a good understanding of why boats float or sink, stay upright or capsize.
