I downloaded your book a few days ago, and have started reading it! I has been hard to put down. I also have plans on cruising either later this year, or in the new future. I have been around boats most of my life, so I feel pretty comfortable. I took some ASA class last fall (www.MokaKat.com
) which I kept a blog about my experiences. Thanks for coming aboard the forum to answer our questions! Once I finish I will for sure rate the book! So far it has been an excelent read!
