    • Why Didn't I Think of That? is the marine equivalent of Hints from Heloise
    • Cruising on a small boat is a continuous learning experience

    • Here you'll find nearly 1,200 tips on everything from anchors to bilge pumps, refrigeration to communication, food preparation to handy gadgets, finding just the right tool to weathering the weather, and cruising with children to making your boat a secure and comfortable home
    • This unprecedented collection of 1, 198 tips from scores of voyaging sailors covers virtually every cruising topic imaginable: anchoring, water supplies, weather, electrical systems, engines, solar panels, mail, painting, laundry, ventilation, finances, navigation, canvas work and more
    • Whether you're new to cruising or a full-time liveaboard, this book belongs on board
