Re: Triton Owner's - Review Help

Are you a sailor yourself?

In printed word I think the biggest thing to get right is terminology and vernacular. Don't call the galley a kitchen, or a berth a bed.. that sort of thing. There's a whole language that goes with this and any sailor will quickly get frustrated with mix-ups there.

If any illustrations are to be included they need to be accurate, esp with regard to rigging and sail details.

Most of this should look after itself if you sail yourself. If you don't you need to get a proof reader who is an experienced sailor.
