Re: Just Bought Nigel Calder's Cruising Book
I read both Beth Leonard and Nigel Calder's books mostly cover-to-cover. Great information in both. They cover some of the same stuff, but each has it's own focus. I think I would want a relatively simple cruising boat. Nigel Calder tends to make it seem that you need to have everything to the n'th degree. Taking all his advice would make for a pretty expensive boat (but very comfortable, functional, and safe).
