Chapman's 67th Edition

The new edition of Chapman Piloting & Seamanship came out last September, and I'm surprised that nobody here has said anything about it (at least, search did not turn up anything).

Has anyone looked at it? What revisions and updates are particularly notable? Regulation updates? New technology updates? New anchor types? Is there any significant reorganization or other changes/improvements?

As of today, there is still no Kindle version, but Barnes and Noble does have a Nook version. I would think it could be very nice to have the e-book version on a small boat.

Re: Chapman's 67th Edition

In 40ish years on the water, I've own two versions. The current one is something like 5 to 10 years old.

I flip inside about once per year to find something. I find guests aboard flip the pages more frequently, while they're in the mode.

Re: Chapman's 67th Edition

I got the new one for Christmas last year. I haven't done a compare with an older version, so I can't speak to that. I can say that it is a painfully heavy book! Handy for balancing your hull trim and as a backup anchor

Yes and using the Nook as a anchor is not recommended, does not do much for the display.

I looked at it in B&N the other day, but did not have an old one to compare it to. I do like the old school cover. I am not sure I would like a Nook version as the display is too small. I like the big pages of the large format book for the illustrations. I would not mind if it came with both, but would not get the e-book alone.

Re: Chapman's 67th Edition

What sort of stuff would change? Maybe some laws that apply to commercial captains? I sail "navigable waters" a handful of times a year at best. Do I need the newest version? I got the 46th from the FREE pile of a neighborhood yard sale and read every page of it.

I don't use AIS and I never used EPIRBS. That stuff seems to change and would be useful to lots of people who aren't me. If USCG decides to switch the port light to green and starboard to green I'll read about it on sailnet first.

Re: Chapman's 67th Edition

I am a big fan of the 66th Edition (not to take anything away from the 67th). Nice to update every so often.

Sounds like you don't need to buy it.

Too bad your 46th edition doesn't say anything about Loran. You really miss out on that one!
