Great Sailing Books

I'm just interested in what some people think are "must have" books for sailors.

I'm interested in learning about styles of boats, rigging (best uses), storm tactics and general advice about restoration.

Please let me know what your thoughts are.

Thanks,
RJB

Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin serial. You're going to need to know how to conduct a boarding operation at some point.
