Sailingdog, Would you believe I have that book on the shelf I think. I will check when we fly back home tomorrow from PHX. Thanks for the link...it jogged my memory as I hadn't read that book in quite awhile.

as Mr. Dog indicated.

If I had just five books to bring around the world, it would be this, Heavy Weather Sailing, The Voyager's Handbook, Calder's Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual, and Calder's Marine Diesel Engines, despite the overlap of the last two.

As a bonus, Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes, Wally Ross's Sail Power and Earl Hinz's Complete Book of Anchoring.

Not light reading, any of them, but very good reference works for the offshore cruiser.

Interesting. You linked to Nautical Mind.com and I got Amazon, despite the fact that I live a 25 minute walk from Nautical Mind's compact shop and buy 50% of my books there.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Leave it to a dog to go fetch the book. That is the one I was refering to. Beyond the specific review, there is a lot of information on just what an offshore boat should look like. One can then weigh their own boat and make changes if possible and needed. A couple of examples that come to mind are cockpit size and companionway size that both can be addressed if you know the specs on what they ought to be.

I was thinking American Water Spaniel or Cocker Spaniel.
