Haven't read it yet, but the second I read this post (and reading the reviews here and @ the amazon link provided) I went out and ordered this title through the Barns & Noble down the street. as an avid fish fiend, and a wannabe sailor, this title appears to be a great read, with good straight forward directions/suggestions.
although this is not my thread I would like to thank you for this suggestion.
and to the OP for starting this thread,
and everyone else for there personal experience: this thread is an fun read
