Radar For Mariners Revised Edition

SKU

Nothing beats radar for guiding your boat through the darkest night or the thickest fog. Radar enables you to plot a fix from just a single buoy or landmark, and it is the only navigation tool that tells you not just where you are, but who else and what else is out there with you. Today's smaller, affordable, more powerful radars make more sense than ever for sailors and powerboaters.

This complete, in-depth manual shows you how to:

  • Choose the best radar model for your sail- or powerboat
  • Install, adjust, and operate your system
  • Interpret the images on your radar screen
  • Pilot your boat and track the movements of vessels around you
  • Use radar to track and avoid squalls, to outmaneuver competitors in a yacht race, and for other specialized tasks
  • Interface your radar with a digital compass, GPS, or electronic chart
